Clean Water

Every day in rural communities and poor urban centers throughout sub-Saharan Africa, hundreds of millions of people suffer from a lack of access to clean, safe water. This often forces those living in water deprived regions to turn to unsafe water resources, which, according to the World Health Organization, contributes to the spread of waterborne diseases including typhoid fever, cholera, dysentery and diarrhea, and to the spread of diseases such as malaria whose vectors rely on such water resources, and can lead to diseases such as trachoma, plague, and typhus.

At JOYE, we are working to ease the burden of providing clean, safe water sources to villages in The Gambia. Your donations will help us to provide wells in villages that will give people in these poor rural communities access to a reliable water source.
