According to the World Health Organization, only 1 in 4 Liberians has access to safe drinking water. Half of the population has no access to toilet facilities, making sanitation a serious problem that causes a proliferation of fast spreading diseases like Cholera. About 800 children die yearly from the outbreaks of water-borne diseases like cholera caused by unsafe water and sanitation. DKF will install water pumps in Liberian towns, making water safe and later supporting cultivation of crops with proper irrigation.
We believe that one of the greatest differences we can make in Liberia is in providing sustainable access to clean water to rural communities in need. As you read the real-life stories of how children and women struggled in getting water, you will understand why we are motivated in undertaking our Water Projects, and you will also discover how you can help to save and improve lives through the gift of clean water.
