WASH IN CLINICS & SCHOOLS

The water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) situation in Nyamandlovu, Zimbabwe is characterized by water quality and availability challenges despite the presence of notable water resources in the form of an underground water aquifer in close proximity. These challenges have left communities complaining about the water taste and failure to have dependable supplies of portable water in local health facilities.

WHO WE ARE

We are JB Dondolo, Inc. We are working to bring clean water, sanitation and hygiene programs (WASH) and healthcare facility improvements to underserved communities in Africa (some programs in the USA). We know that these efforts are crucial to lifting communities above poverty line and instill a sense of hope for a better future in thriving communities.

POVERTY IN AFRICA

results in more than 500 million people suffering from waterborne diseases. 2 million people die each year due to waterborne diseases, most of them children under the age of 5. According to the U.N. Millennium Project, more than 50 percent of Africans have a water-related illness like cholera.

OUR IMPACT

JB Dondolo, Inc. is actively refurbishing Nyamandlovu’s clinic which serves a growing population of 20, 000 people. Our work benefits expecting mothers, newborn babies, young girls and boys, and the elderly. Long-term this would mean safe drinking water for the clinic and therefore more people seeking medical help as well as more girls attending school – a better and healthier future for the community!

WHERE WE WORK

Our mission is to provide basic necessities to underserved communities. We believe that water and functional healthcare centers are a human right. We work where there is a need. Our current Hospital Hope project is in Nyamandlovu rural area in Zimbabwe.

OUR APPROACH
