Swahili Maji Safi - Clean water
Support Aid Ministry believes that access to fresh water helps to sustain and prolong life, prevents the spread of disease, promotes an increased quality of life, and increases time for economic productivity. We focus to responds to the water crisis in three ways:
· Drilling wells: Clean water wells not only improve one’s quality of life, they prolong it
· Building latrines: Most people don’t realize how important a toilet is – yet clean toilets play a huge role in preventing the spread of bacteria and disease. Our approach is that In many of the same communities, schools and hospitals where wells are drilled, we use local materials to build the facilities and community leaders are trained to maintain them.
· Educating communities: Clean water changes lives, but to maximize its impact, it must be accompanied by sanitation and hygiene education. SAM believes in teaching children and families how to keep themselves and their communities healthy and clean through hand-washing, regular bathing, oral hygiene, safe food preparation, trash pick-up and more.

wo WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION REPORT
According to a recent WHO report, more than 2.5 billion people worldwide lack access to basic sanitation services – that’s more than one-third of the global population! Due to lack of access to clean water, water-related diseases kill 1 out of every 5 children under the age of 5 worldwide. In fact, dirty water kills more people every year than all forms of violence, including war.
