SANITATION AND HYGIENE HEALTH IN RWANDA
Issue: Only half of Rwandans have access to adequate sanitation facilities, and just 76% have access to clean water. Children spend hours collecting unsafe water from rivers and swamps — water that leaves them suffering from diarrhea and intestinal parasites.
Response: At the Compassion center, children are provided with hygiene training, clean drinking water and health checkups. Compassion Rwanda is working to get clean, potable water in every registered child’s home by distributing water filters.
