Boiwoin is a village located in Deiwoin Distirct, in the western region of Liberia - 20 miles from the Nation's capital - Monrovia. It has a population of approximately 1,200 inhabitants comprising of mostly women children/youths, and the elderly. it has been in existence as back as the 1800's (prior to Liberia becoming a Nation in 1847). Due to the low SES (Social Economic Status) of this village, it lacks some of the very essential elements of healthy daily living such as Safe & clean Drinking Water, Latrines and access to health care.
Currently the inhabitants are constrained to drink unclean stream water, constantly esposed to the danger of wild animals/reptiles and or fall victims of injures, as they go in high bushes to 'find relief' ( use the toilet).
As a result of drinking unsafe/unclean water there continues to be a high prevelence of diseases such as cholera, diarrhea, typhoid fever, E-coli, amongst the village's inhabitants. Furthermore, the villagers, constantly fall victims to injuries from wild animals/reptiles as a result of going to into the high bushes to use the toilet.
With the inception fo covid-19 coupled the these conditions mentioned, the mortality rate in Boiwoin continues to be on the increase.
We are therefore lunching this campaign to raise funds to construct four well pumps (safe drinking water) and four community Latrines (with six stalls each) with the aim of preventing diseases, injuries and enhancing healthy living, the personal safety and dignity of the inhabitants of Boiwoin.
