Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH)

Access to safe drinking water and basic sanitation and hygiene facilities remains out of reach for billions of people worldwide.

Global Ministries believes that access to Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) services is a basic human right and is committed to improving health and wellbeing in underserved and marginalized communities. In collaboration with both Methodist and ecumenical partners, Global Ministries increases access to clean and safe water; revitalizes sanitation facilities and shares knowledge on sanitation and waste management; and helps to reduce infection from preventable, water-borne diseases by enhancing the quality of care in health facilities.
