Bringing clean water to a community is a major step in giving families and individuals.
But it's not enough to provide clean water; we make sure the water remains clean for all to use.
Unknowingly, the people we serve often contaminate the water as soon as it leaves the well, causing illnesses that could have been prevented. By partnering with TBM, we seek to lovingly provide the knowledge and tools to begin the process of mindful hygiene.
Correct hand washing, for example, reduces diarrhea deaths by 44 percent. Something as simple as hand washing is a foundational step in saving lives from numerous avoidable illnesses.
While this knowledge is second nature to many, it isn't in other places around the globe where knowledge of germs is limited. Through hands-on classes that incorporate the gospel and cover basic, practical, and doable lessons where discussion is incorporated, individuals discover ways they and their families can be healthier.
TBM classes teach:
- The importance of clean water
- Germs: What they are, where they are, how they are spread and how to block them from spreading hand washing
- Oral Rehydration Therapy
- Oral Hygiene
- Spiritual applications
