Poor water and sanitation threaten the lives of many African communities and this affects children and women the most. “Water and Sanitation is a cornerstone of public health,” said WHO Director-General Dr. Margaret Chan. “Improved sanitation contributes enormously to human health and well-being, especially for girls and women. We know that simple, achievable interventions can reduce the risk of contracting the diarrheal disease by a third.”
Millions of children, women, and youth in Africa have never accessed a prepared build toilet but rather used the bush and same with no access to safe drinking water. Most children and women throughout their lifetimes are using stream water to bathe and drink. Due to many of our communities programs in Sierra Leone and Ghana, we had to take water along during our community programs because it is sure that such waters are not safe for human consumption. To us, the right of these children and women are neglected and abuse through psychological and emotional ways. They are deprived, maybe because of poverty or because their respective leadership fails to address such alarming issues. For the past years, we are working with other existing companies and organizations who are experts in providing such services. We alarm the community problems and develop strategies to address such challenges. We are thankful for some passionate companies that have helped MYCRO in this direction and in the coming years, we look forward to constructing over 800 water wells, 700 Taps, and 1500 community Toilets in most of our serving communities in need of this service.
