One of the core focus areas of P1:3 Ministries is community development. According to the World Health Organization, approximately 780 million people lack access to improved water sources and 2.5 billion lack access to improved sanitation. This leads to high rates of illness and death due to waterborne diseases. Providing clean water through the installation of a borehole and hand pump can reduce the rate of waterborne disease by 15%.  Combine this with the installation of a latrine and hygiene education and you reduce the rate of illness and death by 75%.  P1:3’s community development program works with the village leaders to create sustainable solutions to correct these issues. The solutions can be as simple as refurbishing existing failed pumps and latrines to as complex as the installation of totally new systems.

We can only do this work because of the generosity and support of people like you!  Will you consider partnering with us?  For more information about this project, visit our website at www.p13ministries.org.
