The community where we work has never known a world without a pandemic.


From cholera to typhoid, in parts of Kenya people face deadly illnesses all the time - coronavirus is just the latest addition, 80% of people have no access to clean water or soap, and no protection against viruses and diseases.

Until we can wash our hands of deadly illnesses, let’s make sure more people can wash theirs. Have a look at the ways you can protect more lives below...
