Dube Bute Need
Without access to clean water or adequate health and education facilities, the people in Dube Bute long for the basic necessities of life. Waterborne disease is one of the most rampant causes of illness in the community and when people become sick, there are no equipped health facilities to get the medical care they need. When children are not home sick with waterborne illness, they are attending school in overcrowded mud buildings where they are often forced to sit on the dirt floor. Additionally, this rural community, which relies so heavily upon their livestock, is at the mercy of nature when it comes to their animals’ health. With no veterinary services available, they live in constant fear that their livelihood could be stripped away by sickness in their animals. This community desperately needs help for water, education, and health so that they can work to lift themselves out of their extreme poverty. Because of its rural, isolated location it would be difficult for the people of Dube Bute to access any kind of resources to help them improve their situation, even if they could afford it. But they can’t afford it. They need help. Luckily, Glimmer, with the help of donors, can raise the money to bring the necessary changes to Dube Bute.
