Not just a drop in the bucket: providing safe, clean water

 

Access to clean water and effective sanitation are essential to people's life, health and dignity.

Water filters remove bacteria that cause deadly diseases like cholera and typhoid. This is important in refugee camps because disease can spread quickly.

Caring Americans play an indispensable role in providing safe, clean water to women, children and men fleeing violence and persecution all over the world.

Martin, father and refugee from Central African Republic, makes sure his children wash their hands at Molé refugee camp in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. They are among the thousands of women, children and men who fled violence and persecution in their home country. Thanks to the camp's supply of clean, safe water, Martin and his wife Juliet have also planted a garden. The vegetables it yields supplement the food they buy with cash assistance.
