Thanks to your partnership, members of the Shimano community, school and health care facility now are enjoying clean drinking water and the prospects of a healthier future. This new mechanized system is providing 1,882 people, 998 students and 1,400 patients with an accessible source of clean water.

Water, sanitation, and hygiene committees, comprised of community members, are trained and committed to managing the water systems and ensuring the availability of water for generations. Water continues to flow from World Vision water points because of our integrated community engagement model that focuses on community empowerment and sustainability.

World Vision is multiplying the health benefits of clean water by addressing sanitation and hygiene in Shimano. Activities include helping people build and maintain latrines promoting handwashing, and providing schools and health with sanitation facilities. When combined, water, sanitation, and hygiene interventions can reduce child disease and death by more than half, increase attendance, and reduce malnutrition rates.

Thank you for helping to improve health and save lives by providing clean water to families in Shimano. We’re grateful for your partnership.
