Your Urgent Support Needed to Slow the Spread of COVID-19 in Rural East Africa
As COVID-19 spreads throughout East Africa, Well Aware is rapidly responding to protect the health and wellbeing of the 270,000+ people we've supplied clean water to since 2010.
This virus will cause significant damage in our rural partner communities across Kenya and Tanzania due to the lack of medical infrastructure, short supply of soap and handwashing stations, and the gap in vital information that is accessible.
We know basic hygiene can reduce illness in rural communities by 64%, and that proper handwashing can help prevent the spread of COVID-19, specifically. We also know that 34% of Kenyans between the ages of 18 and 34 own a smartphone, and that most local leaders in our partner communities have access to mobile technology.
That’s why we’ve partnered with Well Beyond to deploy an app-based WASH (Water, Sanitation & Hygiene) tool to meet this crisis head-on.
By deploying emergency WASH support via Well Beyond’s mobile app, we can equip our partner communities with vital information and strategies needed to slow the spread of the virus and save lives. Learn more about our response here.
Your urgent support could save lives.
Every dollar raised will allow us to provide this life-saving WASH tool to all of our partner communities across 70+ projects. Your gift will help protect the more than 270,000 people we’ve provided clean water to since 2010.
We are acting quickly to help protect these vulnerable populations.
Your gift today is critical. We thank you for continuing to stand with us, especially during these difficult times.
It’s an honor to have you by our side as we press forward. May you stay safe, healthy, and united.
Our deepest gratitude,
