PROJECTS TO BE FUNDED
Through successful FUNDRAISING the following projects in the rural areas of developing countries become a REALITY rather than a DREAM
- MALARIA PREVENTION CAMPAIGN
Donating as many mosquito nets as possible to children and youth in villages to prevent malaria. This will prevent over 2.7 million deaths per year especially in children and youth according to the World Health Organization (WHO).
- WATER FOR LIFE PROJECT
More than one billion people do not have access to safe drinking water. More than two billion people do not have the dignity of proper sanitation. Over two million people - mostly children - die each year from dirty water and poor sanitation conditions.
More than 6,000 children die every day from diseases associated with lack of access to safe drinking water, inadequate sanitation and poor hygiene. In developing countries, about 80% of illnesses are linked to poor water and sanitation conditions. At any one time, half of the world's hospital beds are occupied by patients suffering from water-borne diseases.
This is a quote by UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan on World Water Day, 2001: "'Access to safe water is a fundamental human need and, therefore, a basic human right. Contaminated water jeopardizes both the physical and social health of all people. It is an affront to human dignity.'"
In an effort to prevent this, Youth Life International Relief has focused on the development of Low-Cost Borehole Water Systems, Wells, Rainwater catchment tanks and sanitation facilities; hygiene education and sanitation promotion. This gives a community access to clean (water-borne diseases free) drinking water and also provides good sanitation.
- HIV/AIDS PROJECT
Our volunteers and local professionals focus on raising HIV/AIDS awareness and educating youth and the community they live in. Information on how the epidemic is spread and how to take measures to protect themselves from contracting HIV/AIDS is provided by the local HIV/AIDS Centres.
HIV/AIDS testing is also provided FREE-OF-CHARGE to the community. We also focus on supplying affordable antiviral drugs to help those affected maintain their health. The local community also forms social groups to the visit HIV/AIDS patients.
- HEALTH CARE PROJECT
Making it possible for affordable Health Care in well equipped Health Centres available thus giving the community access to basic health care.
