First thing first, WHERE WILL YOUR MONEY GO?
- We will use the fund to conduct workshops on Water, Sanitation & Hygiene (WASH)
- FIVE underprivileged communities: 2 "Orang Asli" communities in Malaysia, 2 under-resourced schools and 1 Brothel in
Bangladesh (because they lack knowledge on WASH and live in extremely unhygienic condition)
-Diarrhea is globally the second leading cause of death in children under 5
-We will help prevent WASH related diseases like Diarrhea, Cholera etc
- Approx 5000 people will become aware about the criticality of WASH, ultimately saving lives
“Ever since I lost my mother from diarrhea, I have made it my life’s goal to ensure clean water and sanitation for all, so that no one else is haunted by lifelong regrets of not being able to save their loved ones due to unawareness," says Shomy Hasan Chowdhury, Co-Founder of Awareness 360.
