About SiWS Health Education and Hygiene Trust

The Project

To establish community education and environmental programmes in rural villages in Sierra Leone.

What we can do

* Provide clean water and effective sanitation through new wells and latrines, * Provide rat-resistant food storage containers and water bottles, * Provide tools and seeds for villagers to grow their own food, and * Provide outreach workers to teach villagers how to combat this disease and help themselves.

The Partners

* The World Health Organisation is working at a strategic level in the area. * The British Red Cross is working with the Sierra Leone Red Cross Society to implement the Community Based Healthcare Programme. * Soroptimist International Wales South is the fundraising partner, working with SI Freetown as our local representation.

Funds raised may be used to ...

* £10 buys food containers and water bottles for one family to keep basic supplies clean and uncontaminated by rats. * £100 buys tools and seeds for one village, for 100 families, to grow their own food. * £1000 buys 5 latrines and £2000 buys a well to improve sanitation and hygiene. We will: 1. Develop and implement effective community outreach programmes which address clean water supply, effective sanitation, effective food production and storage, healthy diets in local communities and use of condoms; 2. Increase the knowledge and awareness of local communities regarding Lassa Fever and other communicable diseases in order to increase earlier presentation of clinical cases and to decrease the social isolation experienced by people who contract the disease, and of their families; 3. Decrease the incidence/prevalence and mortality rates of Lassa Fever, acute diarrhoeal diseases, malaria and malnutrition in programme areas.
