WATER, SANITATION AND HYGIENE( WASH)
According to statistics, about 47 million Nigerians practice open defecation and, no fewer than 60 million lack access to safe water. This problem is mostly peculiar to the Rural communities and urban slums. Oak Rural Health knows that water is important to public health and add values to the economic muscles of majority of the Rural dwellers. This is because, a number of them engage in farming activities that require lots of water and the need for a safe drinking water is never overlooked.
There is high possibility of infection outbreak and diseases in areas without clean water and with unsanitary environment. Long before the era of COVID19 when effective hand washing becomes the first line action towards preventing the spread, Provision of clean water and environment has remained a core component of sustainable development goals. We develop strategies that collaborate with partners and stakeholders to provide clean and potable water within Rural communities.
