In 2018, over 3 million people in Ghana have no choice but to collect dirty water from unsafe sources.
Women and children are forced to drink dirty and unsafe water, and due to drinking contaminated water, diarrheal disease is the third most commonly reported illness at health centres across the country.
Caravan of Mercy has launched its largest water project to date, we aim to install a purification plant in Northern Ghana so thousands of people can finally have access to clean safe water.
The need for purification plants in Northern Ghana is great. In March 2015 Caravan of Mercy visited Northern Ghana and got to witness the reality of this great crisis.
It is now 2018 and even though much funds have been collected, we still have not reached our target allowing us to commence this project.
The Self Sustaining or Self Supporting Projects (SSP) are an important part of what Caravan of Mercy is all about. We have for many years been using your generous donations to improve the lives of families in India and Bangladesh. We have now started our humanitarian efforts in West Africa as well.
Caravan of Mercy used your donations in Northern Ghana in order to help poor widows and other single women who do not have a bred winner to support them and their families. They were given approximately £150 each as gifts, on your your behalf, so that she could start their own businesses according to the fields they were most confident in.
