The Water Effect Appeal

This Christmas you and your congregation can help deliver vital clean water to health centres, so staff can better treat patients when they’re at their most vulnerable.

Around the world, 1 in 3 health centres don’t have clean water.

That means in places like Talo, Mali, Dr Martin Koné and Matron Salimata Dagnoko must make choices that compromise the health and safety of their patients. Every day, they deliver babies and treat injuries and illnesses without clean water to wash their equipment, their hands or their treatment room.

"I think if we had a water source and taps in the delivery rooms, this would change our working conditions. We would be able to wash our hands at any time, and we could meet the hygiene and sanitation standards."
