Steven, 26, is married with a little boy. He is grateful to YAU for all the health training and support he has received. He learnt that to keep his family healthy, his home needed to be equipped with certain facilities such as a pit latrine, hand washing facilities, drying lines for clothes. He needed to keep his animals out of the home, introduce good food and personal hygiene practises. Now his family no longer suffers from regular bouts diarrhoea and typhoid, saving medical costs of up to 50% of their weekly income.
He is delighted with the dramatic change in his family’s health and the decrease in medical bills! And of course a healthy home means a productive home, as he is well enough to farm his land.
