Water for Health or Who Said Troughs Aren’t Meant To Be Used As A Pool?

In the first photo, a mother gives a bath to her children in the clean water from the Couloubade borehole.  Why not recycle an animal trough into a bathtub?  The children aren’t too happy. Baths are a new thing to get used to!

In the second photo, children from our Fulani community, Couloubade, learn proper hand-washing techniques from our health team.

In the third photo, children turn one of our Ebagueye troughs into a swimming pool.  I would too with temperatures higher than 45 degrees Celsius.

In the fourth photo, our nurse Hadiza is taking the vitals for a malnourished baby in the village of Kijigari.  Our mobile health team provides both preventative and curative services.  We treat pregnant women and children for free, from anything from diarrhea, to pneumonia and hypertension. We also support government health services by administering immunization to the most remote populations, and provide extensive education courses on all health themes, but specialize in nutrition, women’s reproductive health, and WASH (water, sanitation and hygiene).
