Having clean hands is crucial when caring for newborns. A faucet and handwashing basin make hand washing easier and safer for a midwife.
Juliana is a midwife in Tanzania who benefited from a new water supply at her hospital. "I am seeing a big difference," she says. "We have water running out of the labor and maternity ward taps all the time. It’s very easy for me to wash my hands after helping a mother; there is reduced infection and mothers are happy to come to deliver here."
