Determinantes of Health: Clean Water & Adequate Sanitation
40 per cent of the 783 million people in Sub-Saharan Africa are without access to an improved source of drinking water and only 30 per cent have access to proper sanitation.
CPAR provides access to clean water and adequate sanitation for rural African communities. Working with community members, we construct wells and water points, rainwater harvesting tanks, ventilated improved pit latrines and hand-washing stations. Because clean water alone does not prevent water borne illnesses, we also provide vital health and hygiene education for schools and villages.
By supporting CPAR’s Clean Water & Adequate Sanitation program, you’ll help bring the gift of health and wellness to rural communities in Africa, in turn helping to prevent deaths due to waterborne illnesses and diseases.
