For children’s health

To grow up properly, children need to stay healthy.
The most vulnerable children are a priority in our development projects or during emergencies such as natural disasters or conflicts.

Our work is structured around several areas of intervention:

Access to clean water, sanitation and hygiene

Clean water is essential for children to stay healthy and avoid contracting diseases such as cholera or developing diarrhea or malaria.
Access to water also ensures good hygiene, which is particularly necessary in the context of the COVID-19 crisis.
To make our approach complete, we are working on street sanitation in urban areas and the creation of latrines, which provide additional protection for the good health of children.
Our teams build dozens of boreholes and thousands of latrines each year, impacting the lives of thousands of children and their mothers.

Staying healthy even during emergencies

During conflicts, natural disasters or more recently the COVID-19 pandemic, it is vital that children and their mothers have access to clean water and basic hygiene items to protect themselves and prevent the spread of diseases.
Every year, we distribute thousands of hygiene kits and build dozens of emergency wells, because no child should be left behind.

Quality access to pediatric health services

In conflict zones and in the poorest regions, health centres and pediatric services are very often destroyed or inoperative.
By rehabilitating and rebuilding rural health centres and pediatric services, we are enabling thousands of children and their mothers to be healthy and have regular follow-up.
