Farming communities and farmer families need improved access to clean water and basic health care.
We work with our partner cooperatives to improve access to basic health care services. Barry Callebaut inaugurated a medical center in Goh village in 2008 that serves some 18,000 people who live in the surrounding communities. A program to provide water is underway with 7 bore holes and water systems having been built and inaugurated in 2012 and 2013. We have distributed nearly 1300 mosquito nets and will subsidize access to water filters that turn untreated water into safe drinking water. We sponsored almost 1,000 vaccination treatments.
