Here is a video from this mission:
GlobalMedic, in coordination with partners in Sierra Leone including UNICEF and the Islamic Dawah Training Centre (IDTC), have implemented a clean drinking water program that has delivered 2.42 million Aquatab water purification tablets to beneficiaries in need. These tablets will purify over 12 million litres of clean drinking water.
Through IDTC, the 960,000 Aquatabs were delivered to families and Health Clinics in the Mile 91 area of Tonkolili. Through UNICEF, the tablets were distributed to in country WASH partners including Action Against Hunger (ACF), the Bangladesh Rural Advancement Committee (BRAC), CARE, Catholic Relief Services (CRS), Living Waters, SAVE the Children and the Sierra Leone Red Cross. These will continue to be distributed into the communities these NGO’s work with throughout Sierra Leone.
The program was developed and implemented in response to the cholera crisis that ravaged the country, in addition to the general lack of clean drinking which plagues the rural areas of Sierra Leone.
