Fundraising for Caring Response Madagascar Foundation
In 2017 i joined the members of Caring Respnse Madagascar Foundation for their medical mission to Madagascar. I was able to see the changes this Cincinnati-based organization has brought for those in the communities of Madagascar. I was also able to see what work still needs to be done. Please join me in supporting this clean water project through CRMF!
The Partners: Cincinnati nonprofit Caring Response Madagascar Foundation (CRMF)
and Madagascar nonprofit ONG St. Gabriel have been working together for almost 20
years to increase literacy and equip communities to prevent water-borne disease
The Solution: Health promoters from the community will teach families about filtering
water and using composting latrines instead of open defecation. Families will help to
build their own latrines and learn how to maintain them and the household water
filters. The previous Model Healthy Villages – the most recent funded by a Global Grant
with support from District 6670 and the Cincinnati and Northmont Rotary Clubs – have
dramatically reduced deaths and sickness due to water-borne disease
Where: community of Analamalotra, near Tamatave on Madagascar’s east coast
How many will benefit: 4,880 people in 800 households
How: By the project’s end, all 800 families will have latrines and water filters, plus an
ecological stove to reduce lung disease by venting smoke outside the house.
When: the project starts this fall.
