KEEP THEM SAFE FROM DISEASE
Now, and in the future.
At 16, Sarah (pictured) is no stranger to loss. Through conflict, Sarah lost her home. But it was when they lost access to clean water that Sarah lost her father and three of her siblings.
Now, she and her family are safe in Buporo camp — a camp for internally displaced people in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Disease is a real threat, but since Oxfam installed a water tank and introduced hygiene classes, things are improving.
Sarah’s mum, Louise, is now a caretaker in the Buporo community.
She cares for orphaned children as her own, is a member of a women’s forum and as the President of the Hygiene Committee, is helping to establish a culture that will help entire families stay healthy, happy and safe.
