Serving Ten Families
Cent to Change aims to give access to clean drinking water for the families at Baseco, Tondo. During the launch at the start of this month, we are serving three (3) families. And because of your partnership, it is our joy to share with you that we are now serving ten (10) families. Each family is given two containers (10 gallons) of water every week.
You may be wondering how we choose the families?
Cent To Change partnered with God of Tabernacle, the community church in the compound, and they select the families that we are serving. It is important that the beneficiary families should have a child/children ages 5 years old and below.
According to UNICEF data, diarrhoea remains a leading killer of young children, accounting for approximately 8 percent of all deaths among children under age 5 worldwide in 2016. This translates to over 1,300 young children dying each day, or about 480,000 children a year, despite the availability of simple effective treatment.
Most preventable diseases like diarrhoea are caused by families and children not having access to clean water.
As you continue to donate your change to Cent To Change, we are one step forward to alleviating the effects of unclean water from these communities, and saving vulnerable kids too.
Together, let us aim to give our fellow Filipinos access to clean drinking water.
