In Tiko, a rural town in the Southwest region of the Republic of Cameroon, an estimated 70% to 80% of diseases are attributable to poor water quality, and in some cases, a lack of drinking or portable water. Dysentery and cholera, for example, are among the leading causes of infant mortality in the community.
Wholesome Health Promotion (WHP) has initiated a project to drill modern communal water boreholes to make water easily and safely accessible to the community. This project is critical because without access to safe water, water-borne diseases will continue to proliferate with negative long-lasting health, economic and social effects on an already impoverished community that has been severely impacted by the Coronavirus pandemic.
