Safe Water and Hygiene

Water and Sanitation

Some 884 million people around the world do not have adequate access to safe water; 2.5 billion have little or no access to basic sanitation. UMCOR is helping vulnerable communities in Africa, Asia, and Latin America gain better access to clean water by locating safe water sources, educating communities, and improving sanitation to alleviate diseases of poverty.

Your gift of $6,000 can dig a deep borehole well in Africa; $2,500 can provide a latrine and hygiene education in Nicaragua; and $150 can purchase a bio-sand filter for one family of five in Haiti.
