Stories from Our Work
Bringing Water to Clinics in Need
The Boulounguéy health clinic in Niger doesn’t have clean water, electricity, toilets or showers. Nurses and doctors have nowhere to wash their hands or sanitize what little medical equipment they do have. Can you imagine delivering a baby without clean water? This video shares the stories of two nurses: one nurse works in a clinic within a World Vision program catchment area that the program has not yet reached and the second works at a clinic that has been supported through a program focusing on WASH improvements, staff training, and Community Health Worker expansion.
In 2019, when the World Health Organization and UNICEF issued a global call to action to provide water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) in healthcare facilities, World Vision responded with a commitment larger than any other NGO with a goal of reaching 2,000 by 2023.
