Tanzania

From now until September 15th, 15% of each purchase of African herbs and 10% of all other indigenous herbs will be donated to the work we are participating in and creating in Tanzania. 

BE a part of an immediate service and generational shift by not only consuming alkaline herbs for your healing experiencing but also creating an immense support to the villages in Africa. Here is HOW and WHY we are creating an impact there. 

WHY IS CHANTEL DOING THIS?

The purpose is to eliminate the problematic lack of access to clean water, which would indirectly offer solutions to many other problems that challenge the people of the developing world today. Access to safe water is an essential tool for addressing most poverty and health problems, so by installing an avenue for clean water, this "ripples out," and indirectly affects: the overall health of the area, improving the sanitation methods and hygiene of the people, providing a sustainable solution to the hunger problem, bettering the economy, and playing our part in putting a stop to the spreading of the HIV/AIDS virus.

Health
More people die each year from unsafe water than from all forms of violence, including war. To put an end to such avoidable deaths, it is imperative to supply clean, potable water to those who have no access to it. This, in turn, will slow and eventually stop the spread of water born diseases and make a serious dent in the 5 million deaths per year caused by water related diseases. 

Sanitation:
According to the World Health Organization, "no single type of intervention has a greater overall impact upon the national development and public health than does the provision of safe drinking water and proper disposal of human excreta." By providing a village with access to clean water, you are now providing them with a means to properly dispose of human waste. This separation of water for everyday use and water used for sanitation purposes will put an end to water born pathogens that contribute to life altering, and often fatal diseases such as diarrhea, trachoma and schistosomiasis. 

6 to 9 million people are estimated to be blind from Trachoma. The population at risk for this disease is 500 million. This disease can be reduced 25% by provision of adequate quantities of water.

About a third of the population of the developing world is infected with intestinal worms that can be controlled through better water, hygiene and sanitation. These parasites can lead to malnutrition, anemia, and retarded growth.

200 million people in the world are infected with schistosomiasis. 20 million of these go on to suffer severe consequences. This disease can be reduced 77% by providing well-designed water and sanitation systems.

Hunger:
Water is essential for proper nutrition. According to the US Environmental Protection Agency, "a person can live for about a month without food, but only a week without water." By providing a water solution to villages often adversely affected by lack of rain during dry seasons, we will be giving them a solution to help maintain their agriculture in order to provide a sustainable food supply.

Economy:
The World Health Organization states that women and female children spend over 200 million hours every day collecting water from distant, often polluted sources. Some can walk up to 10 miles to collect a 5-gallon jug of water to bring home for family use. If this time was drastically cut down, then it could be better spent on helping to generate income for the family by joining the work force. Also, the fact that the water will greatly contribute to the overall health of the community means that it can supply a stronger, healthier and more capable work force.

AIDS:
A rumor has been spreading in Africa, speculating that one infected with the AIDS virus can cure himself by having sexual intercourse with a virgin. And, as stated in the Economy section, countless hours are spent by women and young girls in efforts to collect clean water for their families, often far into the night, and in deserted areas. This is a large problem affecting the young girls of Africa, because they are steadily getting raped, causing them to become infected with the virus, as well as often being impregnated, which continues to add to the cycle of disease. Therefore, by offering nearby access to clean water we are helping to reduce the amount of people affected by the deadly AIDS virus each day. 

 

WATER IS KING 

The team and I will go to each community after a well has been drilled and the hand-pump has been installed, to teach the women and children of the village things such as:

  • Germ transmission
  • Proper hand-washing practices
  • Importance of brushing teeth
  • Maintenance of the well
  • Proper water collection and storage
  • Proper sanitation practices

WATER FACTS

  • Approximately 1.1 billion people in the world do not have access to safe water. This is roughly four in ten people.
  • According to the World Health Organization, no single type of intervention has a greater overall impact on the national development of public health than does the provision of safe drinking water and proper disposal of human excreta.
  • Water collecting is often done at night and in the early hours of the morning, meaning that women and young children are placed at higher risk for sexual violence when walking long distances in remote areas to collect the water for their families.
  • An extra $10 billion each year is needed to reach the Millennium Development Goal target of halving the proportion of people without access to safe water and sanitation by 2015. This is about HALF of what rich countries spend on mineral water each year.

COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT 

Chantel will also be involved in community development and focusing time and efforts on other aspects of community growth. This will involve medical supplies, farming land, and other workings that support the people of the villages. 

JOIN ME

Join Upful Blends and I now in this EPIC happening of an instant and generational shift that will support in the health and expanded life of the people of Tanzania. The process will be recorded and documented, that way you will be there with me throughout the experience and you'll see what your contribution is creating.

You may purchase alkaline African herbs here, which is ethically harvested from the Western Cape. Purchase alkaline indigenous herbs here. I love you and gratitude for doing this with me.
