The Water Effect Appeal
In a small community health centre in Talo, Mali, Dr Martin Kone and Matron Salimata Dagnoco treat patients from seven surrounding villages, accounting for more than 5000 people. Every day they deliver babies, treat injuries and illnesses and try to avoid sending patients to the extremely costly hospital 85km away.
They do all of this without clean water – to wash their hands, their equipment, or their treatment room. Despite their determination, their work is limited in such an unhygienic environment.
Sadly, Talo is not a unique story. But you and your congregation could help change that, by raising money for WaterAid this Christmas.
Help us deliver vital clean water to health centres and patients when they’re at their most vulnerable – when they are sick or in labor, seeking treatment and care.
