Water 2015 - Approximately $300,000 raised

In 2015 WATER continued its support for the Buruli Ulcer Drug Trial.  During the year, the trial was extended through 2016 because while the trial was going well, it became clear that the 333 cases needed would not be found by the end of 2015.  This is because cases have been dropping in Ghana, which is a good thing.  In 2011 there were 971 cases in Ghana, in 2012 there were 632, in 2013 there were 550 and in 2014 there were 443.  Better education and better W&S may very well be the reason.  Congrats to everyone involved and to everyone who has contributed.  

During the year WATER is targeting 10 boreholes, 2 mechanizations and continued surveillance and health education in the trial districts.  Many thanks to our 2015 donors who are Diageo, Sahara Oil, Rotary and the Methodist Church.
