Global Health Issue
More than two billion people across the world lack adequate sanitation causing the spread of infectious diseases and hygiene-related deaths.
Tragically, 1.4 million children under the age of five die each year due to preventable childhood infectious diseases. Globally, diarrhoea and pneumonia are among the leading causes of childhood deaths. Nearly as many children die from these two diseases as from AIDS, malaria, measles, meningitis and tetanus combined.
Rotary have provided a drop off point at PICAL reception and we are proud to be associated with such a worthwhile and vital program.
