With over 3 million annual water-related deaths in Ethiopia, the need for pure water and hygiene is critical, with 66% of the rural population has unimproved drinking water sources, and 81% of the rural population does not have water sanitation facilities.
H.A.P.P.Y. has plans to locate, install, and distribute potable water throughout the Tigray, Ethiopia region. In doing so, most water-borne ailments will be curtailed, which will decrease the amount of traffic going to the very few, overcrowded hospitals. Of those suffering, most are children. Once clean water is secure, these children can go to our schools.
