A healthy child learns better, is happier and has a positive outlook on life. Star of Hope focuses on prevention and community health issues as some of the most efficient use of funds and the best way to impact the quality of life.
Water, sanitation, personal hygiene are all integrated into our school projects. Teaching the best way to wash your hands is a simple but effective method to save lives. Safe drinking water is a major impediment to health in many of our project areas, so water is a key element in our health efforts.
When needed Star of Hope has stepped in with acute and emergency care. A recent example was providing trauma surgical teams in the days following the 2010 Haiti earthquake,
Our goal is to make sure that every child has safe drinking water, adequate sanitation and is monitored to assure that they are thriving.
