A healthier start

WAS £15.00 £7.50

Product description

For families facing drought, or living in areas far from the nearest water supply, providing clean, safe water is life-saving. That’s why Oxfam works in some of the world’s harshest environments, digging wells and installing water pumps, taps and toilets so people have the water they need and can protect themselves against deadly disease. Gifts like this one make it all happen. In Niger, poor living conditions can make it difficult for parents to give their children a good start in life. And if a child becomes sick with a condition such as malnutrition, it can be fatal without the right care. But thanks to people like you, Binta has been able to help her daughter and her whole community to stay safe.

This gift supports our Water for All (WA) projects.

This gift in action

A healthier start

Binta’s daughter, Fatima, became very sick with malnutrition. Binta feared she would lose her. But thankfully, Fatima received the care she desperately needed at a treatment centre where Oxfam has provided clean water, handwashing stations and more. Now, Binta works for Oxfam as a Community Health Leader, helping families who are going through what she has in the past. Binta weighs children to help catch and treat malnutrition early. She also teaches people the importance of good hygiene to stay healthy. Thanks to gifts like yours, more children around the world will get the care they need to stay safe from disease and have a bright future. “Today my little girl is well! She’s eating well, and can even eat the same as everyone else, a little millet porridge, some fruit, everything she’s given!”
