The Friends of COOPI Suisse change stories: they provide food, water, security and education
Millions of people worldwide are living in critical conditions: women, men and children who struggle every day to survive wars, natural disasters and exploitation - with no access to medical care, water, food or education.Thanks to the Friends of COOPI Suisse children who suffer from malnutrition receive proper care, local communities have access to water for drinking and farming, men and women learn innovative techniques for agriculture and livestock, and children living in emergency contexts can finally go to school. Thank you for being on the side of the weak and vulnerable, where there is war, famine, injustice and poverty.
This year we want to ensure food supplies to 3,600 people and we intend to provide water and sanitation to 3,500 men, women and children.
My children feel better
"As soon as we arrived here, our children continued to see everything they had experienced during the attacks of Boko Haram. Then I sent them to COOPI's psychosocial assistance center where they followed the recreational and support activities. Slowly they are overcoming their trauma and getting better". Kari lives with her two children in a refugee camp in Niger.
Today we have clean water
"Until recently, we used to drink dirty water and becoming sick was normal. Now that the water is available, there is nobody in my village that cannot fix a well". In Abu Dam (Northern Darfur), King Jaffer, the village chief, made sure that the water supply would become a task even for men, not just for women.
