The Water and Sanitation Hygiene program provides aid to communities that have little to no access to clean water. In these communities, water is an invaluable resource for drinking, farming, and hygiene. However, many families have limited access to water in any form, nonetheless clean drinking water. Some families have to walk a distance for even untreated pond water. This, in addition to a lack of knowledge of basic hygiene leads to illness. In dry seasons, farming communities suffer.

Because of this, numerous people now have clean water, food security, and the means for basic hygiene.
