Did you know that handwashing with soap and safe water could reduce deaths related to diarrheal disease by up to 50 percent? It’s not only important for us to provide safe-water access in communities—we also want to make sure it stays safe! We promote simple solutions like tippy taps in our range of hygiene lessons to ultimately save more lives.
Dionila, a single mother of seven, works nights in the Oaxaca garbage dump, sorting through garbage for recyclables to sell. Her work is grueling, unsanitary, and without sinks, toilets, showers, plumbing, or running water, it was life threatening. Now Dionila and her neighbors in the community of Bicentario have clean water running straight to their homes, and they have the life-saving hygiene and sanitation training they need to keep themselves and their families healthy.
In Oaxaca, Mexico, Living Water International staff are helping communities bring clean water straight to their homes! Working through the local church and community organizers, hygiene promoters train volunteers in the community to teach life-saving hygiene and sanitation lessons to their neighbors.
