We’ve just received the brilliant news that thanks to you our Asháninka partners have built 105 tippy taps. That means 105 families have somewhere to wash their hands.
It might not sound like much, but when diarrhoea kills more children under the age of five than AIDS, TB and malaria combined, handwashing is a simple solution to keeping families healthy.
And healthy families mean healthy forest.
Asháninka health promoter Adelaida Bustamante has been teaching villages how to make tippy taps and explaining to communities why it’s so important to keep hands clean. Thanks to you, she’s been able to deliver materials, soap, and training over 100 families.
On Global Handwashing Day, share this good news:
