We need you to help us protect more lives. In the region of Bomet, Kenya 80% of people have no access to clean water or soap, and no protection against illnesses like cholera, typhoid or coronavirus disease. Infectious diseases can spread quickly and kill the most vulnerable, including children, simply because people aren’t able to wash their hands.
The communities that we serve have never known a world without a pandemic. Until we can wash our hands of deadly diseases, let’s make sure everyone can wash theirs.
You can help to provide clean water and good hygiene to children like Brian by supporting Dig Deep this and your support doesn't just have to come in the form of a cash donation. Below we have listed 11 different and simple ways that you can support Dig Deep and help to protect more lives:
Shop with the Tipsy Food Company
Our friends at the Tipsy Food Company have very kindly offered to support Dig Deep by donating £1 from every bottle that they sell. So if you are looking for the perfect gift then why not get them a delicious bottle of Gin or Rum for them to enjoy.
