Love Zimbabwe has helped the Chinamhora community gain access to water by drilling a bore water hole and by installing toilet and shower facilities at the community centre and at the clinic. Good hygiene and sanitation is incredibly important because it plays a crucial role in preventing diseases. Washing hands before eating can prevent diseases like typhoid, cholera and diarrhoea. These diseases cause many deaths in Africa, however, Love Zimbabwe is helping communities prevent diseases by improving water facilities.
There is a continuing need to make sure that everyone has access to clean water, particularly in a country which continues to experience severe droughts. Dehydration is a big issue and it causes many diseases which continue to get worse without access to clean drinking water.
