Story

Brighter Communities Worldwide is an Irish charity based in Midleton, Co. Cork established in 2002. Our work is with communities across Kericho County in Kenya with people who live in areas that lack access to basic needs and where their number one need is to have clean water.

Can you imagine what is like for those communities now as the world is in the grip of the COVID-19 virus and the most important means of preventing transmission is to keep washing your hands? How can you do that when you dont have soap and water?

Our regular programmes have stopped because of COVID-19. But we have a strong network of volunteers who are now joining with our staff team in Kenya to make sure that their friends and neighbours are provided with the facts about COVID-19 and how to protect themselves and their families. This is vital information to help slow down the rate of transmission. We are also working closely with the Ministry of Health to support them in what will be a monumental task in dealing with this outbreak.

We are taking action now to prevent the spread of COVID-19 across the communities we work but we need soap, water containers and information to be distributed across the communities.

We need your help.

We are an organisation built on the strength of this network of volunteers, staff and local connections and this network is going to save lives over the coming months.

It costs 8 to provide one household with soap and a tippy tap to hold the water. We want to reach 47,000 household across Kericho County, Kenya with this life saving intervention.

Please donate - Its in your hands.
