We are working to protect the village of Ngolahun, a remote farming community of 3500 people (living in 350 households) in Eastern Sierra Leone. Currently, these villages do not have electricity, running water, internet, and only minimal cell service. We have dug one well and refurbished another, but the villagers lack places to wash their hands. 80 hand washing stations have already been set up. Each station consists of a large covered water container with a spigot and catch basin. We are also providing two bars of soap and masks for each washing station. We have done an educational outreach program with posters to ensure proper handwashing techniques, social distancing, personal hygiene, and use of masks.
With this money, we will supply a hundred more stations so that every two households have access to a station. If we can raise additional funds, we will supply hand washing stations to the four smaller neighboring villages within a day's walk.
Ngohalun was particularly hard hit by the Ebola virus because of the lack of clean water and sanitation. Please donate to help out this community, any donation size is greatly appreciated. Join us in working today to create a better tomorrow in Sierra Leone. Thank you for your care and generosity.
