Use-Less: Clean water for Kundorwahun Village, Barrie Chiefdom, Pujehun
The village of Kundorwahun currently has no provision for water and no sanitation. The issues this community is grappling with, like most in the district, include water taken from polluted sources and open defecation, risking further contamination of water, resulting in widespread gastro-intestinal disease and child mortality. Locally collected statistics from Pujehun District suggest that over 4,250 children under the age of five die each year from some form of digestive related illness from a population base of 302,000.
Our partner Use-Less is raising money through the sale of their environmentally friendly products to provide clean water for the village.
