  • A Lifeline for Displaced People in Sudan’s Forgotten Conflict

International Medical Corps health workers in Wolyata, Ethiopia are saving lives by teaching skills as basic as handwashing.

In 2011, over 700,000 children worldwide died due to diarrhoea caused by unsafe water, poor sanitation and inadequate hygiene. Handwashing with soap can save millions of lives by protecting people from preventable illnesses like diarrhoea.

Health workers in our worldwide programmes lead handwashing sessions with their communities and in schools. This small change in habits can have a huge impact on health.
