ENHANCE HEALTH FOR ALL
Mosquito nets, latrines, and water wells & catchments
OFDC believes every human deserves the right to basic health needs such as
sanitation and clean water.
Health care in developing countries is virtually nonexistent. Nearly half the world's child death occur
in Africa due to malaria, AIDS and diarrheal diseases.
For as little as $5 - the price of a mosquito net - you can save the life of a child.
During the rainy season, ponds become mosquito breeding grounds. Sadly, 90 Kenyan children under the age of five
die every day from malaria simply because their families cannot afford to purchase a net.
Your OFDC donation buys mosquito nets so children can sleep protected from malaria-carrying mosquitoes.
Your OFDC donation purchases supplies to build latrines, water wells and catchments for rural schools.
Parents provide 20% of the cost along with the unskilled labor,
creating a sense of of pride and ownership.
Now, because of your donation, children
have sanitation and clean water. Asante sana, thank you.
