Thanks to the support of Out of Eden this year, World Vision's Libo Kemkem community have been making great progress particularly focusing on improving maternal healthcare as well as continuing to improve access to clean water and sanitation. Pregnant women are getting regular health check-ups and almost 3,000 expectant mothers have received antenatal and postnatal care. Healthcare workers have also been trained to become midwives, helping double the number of births being attended by a trained midwife to 80%. 14 new wells have either been built or restored this year, making it easier for 1,650 families to access clean water for drinking, cooking and cleaning.
Now, almost everyone living in Libo Kemkem has access to a toilet and a hand washing facility which is an amazing achievement and something we are really proud to celebrate being a part of.
Our holistic approach to business considers local impacts and global consequences. We are proud to have achieved the Cumbria Business Environment Network's Gold Award in recognition of progress in assessment and control of environment practice and also achieved a Silver Award from Investors in People.
