Lifewater Combating Covid 19

Kenya hand washing stationThe global impact of this pandemic reminds us that we are truly living in a global village. Our “neighbour” is no longer just the person living next door, but includes everyone, everywhere.

We are bombarded with messaging about how to stay safe, such as maintaining physical distance and washing hands frequently. Simple, right?

Not so simple. In many places this message has not been communicated—or if it has, people must walk long distances to get water. This may mean walking in a group to stay safe, waiting in a crowd for a turn at the pump, and then taking hold of a pump handle that has been just grasped by many dozens of people. The longer the walk, the more physical contact; and the poorer the hygiene—because of course that precious water must be conserved.

Lifewater Canada’s response to the COVID-19 outbreak began in early March, 2020, and has focused on:

Covid Hygiene
