Females spend a lot of precious time collecting water for their families, taking them away from other productive activities. To lessen this burden, ChildFund is working with the Emali community to provide clean drinking water to more and more households. Unsafe water is a leading cause of illness and death in children, so our water work is vital. New boreholes, pipeline extensions and water pans will be planned and constructed in the most remote locations. ChildFund will also build toilets and educate people on how to use them.
