Health



It costs $7,000 USD to dig a borehole that can provide clean water to an entire community for generations.


It is estimated that, in Africa alone, over 345 million people are without access to clean water.
Through borehole drilling, health education, and better access to medical support, Charity Begins At Home is helping improve many of the health services that most people would take for granted.
