Meet Joyce Osei: Where Safe Water is Independence

Access to safe and affordable water means a life free from water-borne diseases and improved health and hygiene. For some people, like Joyce Osei, piped water to her home is independence.

Due to her disability, Joyce had to rely on other people to bring her water so she could conduct basic activities like brushing her teeth and cooking. When Safe Water Network visited Nobewam, Ghana and offered to install a personal home water system, Joyce didn’t hesitate for a minute.

“Before Safe Water Network, I had to pay people to bring me water. Now I have water in my home whenever I want it. This home water system has been a great relief.” – Joyce
