World Water Day

Today, we celebrate World Water Day — a day where we dream about how the world can achieve availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all.

At Convoy of Hope, we know that a child cannot be well-nourished without water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) which is why we ensure such practices in our program centers. We understand that “feeding” does not just mean “food.” To us, it means safe food that can be readily absorbed and promote a child’s health.

There are several ways we incorporate WASH into our feeding programs. Step one is always to encourage hand washing. This prevents contamination and reduces the likelihood of illnesses. We also use water filters to ensure clean and safe water is accessible where potable water is difficult to find.

We believe that everyone — regardless of age, ethnicity, hemisphere or life stage — has a right to clean water. WASH has been proven to make a difference and we will continue to work hard to make sure the food we serve is being complemented with proper sanitation throughout the world.

Justice for Amenia

Three-year-old, Amenia, knows when she grows older she will have the right to attend school and receive a daily meal through Convoy of Hope — just like her sisters.

Around the world and in the United States, barriers exist for people because of their gender, age, race, ethnicity, religion, culture or disability.

Amenia, a refugee, will face barriers throughout her life that will attempt to limit her development and access to rights. When Amenia attends school in a couple years, a small barrier will be removed that allows an advance in social justice for young refugee girls. Convoy of Hope believes that gender equality and upholding the rights of refugees and migrants are crucial fundamental aspects of our programming. Each time a young refugee girl can receive a daily meal at school, we have succeeded at the purist of social justice.

Amenia’s access to school will not only provide her with education and nutritious meals from Convoy of Hope, it will also provide her the right to development and through that — the right to human dignity.
