Health and wellbeing

Too many people in our region die from preventable illnesses. We work with families, communities and partner agencies to find practical solutions.

Safe water, better toilets

We work with communities to design and build their own water supply and sanitation systems, which last longer and change lives for generations to come.

Promoting hygiene

Something as simple as regular hand washing could save a million lives a year. We help children and their families become lifetime advocates for hygiene.

Practical health solutions

We help communities design their own health solutions: from first aid teams to village-owned health funds and healthy lifestyle initiatives.

Health in emergencies

When disasters strike, we race to restore health services and stop diseases from spreading.
