Keep It Clean

Description

A child in Malawi holds a cup of precious clean water. Extreme flooding early in the year destroyed latrines and water systems so that more people are being exposed to dangerous diseases like cholera.

There’s no home to go to for more than 100,000 people still displaced by floods that struck southern Malawi early in 2015. It’s not just a matter of their homes being destroyed. Under heavy rains, rivers changed course, leaving lands under water or inaccessible.

Resettlement areas are being identified, but in the meantime, life is hard in displacement camps. Access to clean water is compromised by overcrowding and insufficient numbers of toilets.

World Vision is providing toilets and water purification tablets, as well as promoting good hygiene practices such as hand washing and boiling water to drink. World Vision has also assisted families with food, household goods, and programs for children.
