How do Made with Hope protect the children in our orphanage from mosquitoes?

Across the world today, on the 25th of April, the world is turning its attention to the devastating killer disease Malaria. For many of us, this international day is necessary to draw our attention to it, but for 3.2 billion people (almost half of the world population) who are at risk everyday, unfortunately this is always at the forefront of their minds.

In 2015 there were 214 million cases, and 438 000 deaths from Malaria. Despite these shocking statistics, it isn’t all bad news as the global malaria mortality rate decreased by an incredible 60% in 2000 – 15! This highlights the importance of our recognition and involvement to work towards the ultimate goal and #endmalaria.

Made with Hope is committed to creating a healthy life for the children of the orphanage, and therefore #worldmalariaday is highly relevant to the charity! Below are just a few ways in which we have helped the children to avoid the mosquitoes which carry and transmit the lethal disease…

  1. The supply of clothing to cover up their skin
  2. Provided them with shelter: This is particularly effective between dusk and dawn where mosquito are most active
  3. Given them a safe and reliable water source: This means that the children are no longer forced to go the open water holes, where mosquitoes commonly hover, decreasing their chances of contracting the disease

World Earth Day: What can YOU do?

 

The 22nd of April is here! It’s time to celebrate #WorldEarthDay

Since 1970 World Earth Day has been a way to develop consciousness across the globe and motivate us all to consider what we can do to look after our wonderful planet.

Forty-six years later and it’s still going strong! This may be something to celebrate in it’s own right, however, today is even more exciting.

Along with environmentalists who will be campaigning as usual, this year’s Earth Day is also witnessing the signing of the Paris climate agreement.From this, we can see one way in which those politicians signing the Paris Agreement at the UN headquarters in New York will be doing their bit, but what can the rest of us do to help the environment today?

Here are just a few ideas:

Carry a bag for life

This is a very simple change that we can all make.

Cut down on car journeys

We’re all guilty of it! We use our cars for short journeys that are easily within walking distance. Simply making more conscious decisions surrounding this habit can make a huge difference to the environment.

You could also make use of public transport – in Manchester we have one of the busiest bus routes in Europe so you’ll never be waiting long! Alternatively, why not consider investing in a bike? Not only will you be making a positive contribution to the environment by decreasing your carbon footprint, but you will also reap the health benefits!

Recycle and re-use

The importance of recycling is widely recognized nowadays.It reduces the need for extracting new materials which leads to a disturbing amount of air and water pollution. This furthermore saves energy, which in turn reduces harmful greenhouse gas emissions, which helps to tackle climate change.

Conserve water

teeth and waterWe all know that water is life, and that unfortunately, not everyone across the world has easy access to clean drinking water. Here at Made with Hope we find this completely unacceptable, and are happy to report that we have provided clean drinking water to the children in our orphanage! We achieved this as part of our water project which included the input of our award-winning water filter that eradicates 99.99% of bad minerals and diseases.

Here at #MadeWithHope, we think it’s incredibly important that we all recognize our privileged position in this world, and strive for a shift to a more sustainable lifestyle.

World Health Day!

world-health-day

International days are one of the best ways to get involved in helping others as we can realize how lucky we all are!

Today, 7th April 2016, we are celebrating World Health Day!  This gives us a chance to raise awareness of our privileges, as well as the disadvantages of others.

This year’s theme is Beat Diabetes.This is a major problem, not just in the UK, but worldwide. The African region, for example, is challenged with a growing rate of diabetes which is a big challenge to governments, health services, communities and individuals.

Fortunately, there is something we can all do! Made with Hope have already achieved a number of projects, all thanks to the work of people just like you. The charity works to better the healthcare of the children and take preventative measures to avoid illness, These include ensuring the availability of  clean water, hygienic toilets, and sufficient food and shelter.

Below are a couple of pictures which highlight Made with Hope’s fantastic work in improving the lives, and overall health, of those living in remote rural areas of Africa that we work in.

The picture on the left shows our award-winning water filter that eradicates 99.99% of bad minerals and diseases! This was built as part of our water project which provided a tractor that is able to transport 4000 liters of water to over 400 children who need it in our orphanage in Tanzania. Although this itself was a remarkable improvement for them, allowing more time to study and socialize, (as these beautiful children should be able to!) the water in Tanzania is undrinkable so this was necessary as well! We need your help to purchase more for our school, just like this one in our orphanage.

 

 

On the right hand side, we have the Washroom Project’s outstanding achievement of providing hygienic and beautifully decorated washrooms to Made with Hope’s children’s orphanage.This included  4 toilets and 4 shower rooms.

If you would like to help these beautiful children, and ensure Made with Hope’s incredible work is continued, please visit the Made with Hope Website where you can find more information.
