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, and 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. Recent examples include Ukrainian refugees and disasters in Haiti.
One goal is to make sure that every child in and around our projects worldwide has safe drinking water, and adequate sanitation and is monitored to assure that they are thriving.
