The COVID-19 pandemic especially threatens the 3 billion people who do not have access to adequate handwashing facilities with soap and water in their homes. We at the GWAM stand side by side with those most vulnerable to this dramatic pandemic. That is why we are working on new projects, encouraging education and good hygiene practices, providing facilities, and applying our in-country expertise in communities where we have already guaranteed access to water and sanitation to thousands of people since the start of the pandemic. It is by grace we enjoy the success and we give thanks for your help!
COSTECH School (College of Science and Technology—junior and senior high school) is no exception. The everyday challenges that we all are facing are the same for those in Northern Ghana. Based on handwashing, personal hygiene is and continues to be an essential factor in eradicating epidemics like diarrhea or pneumonia, which cause the death of more than 800 children per day in the world’s most disadvantaged communities. And right now, it is a fundamental tool that, together with the social distance, will allow us to fight COVID-19 in Ghana.
