Saving and improving lives through soap.
Diarrhea is the second leading cause of child death in the world today, and the top cause of child mortality in sub-saharan Africa. It is caused by poor sanitation, hygiene, or dirty drinking water. Even when food consumption is sufficient, diarrheal disease inhibits nutrient absorption which can lead to malnutrition as well as underweight and stunted children. Awareness of the health benefits of hand-washing to prevent disease transmission such as diarrhea is still low in many poor communities. It is our goal to sensitize communities to the benefits of washing with soap. Please join our efforts by donating today!
