Sugar and Salt Saves Lives!

Sanitation volunteers re-hydration sachets South Sudan JubaOver the last few weeks, our sanitation volunteers have been visiting communities around Juba, the capital of South Sudan, teaching them how to make oral re-hydration sachets by using sugar and salt. Diarrhoea is one of the most common killers of children under 5 in South Sudan and it causes severe dehydration. This simple concoction will enable poor families and communities to nurse their children through the sickness and so has the potential to save thousands of young lives.

We are extremely grateful for our sanitation volunteers – please keep praying for them to develop good relationships with communities and to be able to teach and introduce improved sanitation practices effectively throughout the city.
