By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Last week, UNICEF donated #Wash supplies to the Ministry of Education, Culture, Science and Technology and the Ministry of Rural Transformation, Community Development, Labour and Local Government.

Fifteen schools and communities will receive the supplies that include 10,000 liters water tanks, water purification tablets, tarps, and hygiene kits.

The total donation is valued at USD $96,000.

UNICEF noted that the donation is part of their ongoing efforts to advocate for climate-smart and resilient schools and communities. 

Through the supplies donated, approximately 12,500 beneficiaries (8,457 residents & 3,955 students) will benefit from this intervention to increase access to clean water and reduced disruptions to learning caused by water shortages.

The handover ceremony was held at Our Lady of Bella Vista R.C School and was hosted by the students and Principal Vincent Nunez.

Minister of State in the Ministry of Rural Transformation, Community Development, Labour and Local Government, Ramiro Ramirez received the donations.

Cecilia-Ramirez Smith, Deputy Chief Education Officer represented the Ministry of Education, Culture, Science and Technology.

“Growing up in a clean and safe environment with access to clean water is a fundamental right of children. Safe water, toilets and good hygiene keep children alive and healthy and also gives them a healthier start in life,” UNICEF said.

UNICEF says that it is committed to working towards sustaining a livable planet for every child.
