Without proper hygiene and sanitation, there is no development.
GlobeMed partners with grassroots organizations around the world to improve the health of people living in poverty. GlobeMed "aims to strengthen the movement for global health equity by empowering students and communities to work together to improve the health of the impoverished around the world."
GlobeMed@Northeastern's current and ongoing project with Kitovu Mobile is a "Hygiene and Sanitation Project for the Self Help Groups in Kayanamukaaka, Uganda." In Uganda, unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation cause 80% of diseases and kill more people every year than all forms of violence...including war.
Last semester our fundraising efforts financed a sanitation and hygience education and implementation program, which proved to be very successful. Education, however, can only go so far without available resources to follow.
Any donation would be greatly appreciated to enable us to push forward with this urgent project.
