How can I share my passion for helping people get clean water if I’m not organizing such things, as this! Join me and also talk to someone to join us do this for a good cause! Giving clean water to a poverty stricken community is like giving a blood transfusion to a dying man. Clean water creates a complete transformation in rural communities. It has the power to actually stop the cycle of poverty. The entire community becomes healthier. For the first time, children become eager to learn while young men and women are able to work harder to produce an income and more food. Everyone can envision better futures and begin working towards them. Clean water and latrines gives people the opportunity and the dignity to lead healthy lives, pursue education, and fulfill their lives to the fullest. The lack of safe drinking water is the primary cause of disease in the world today. Everyday, tens of thousands of people die from causes directly related to contaminated water. And for those who survive, without good health, there is little chance for a normal and productive life. A surprising statistic to many is that contaminated water causes 80% of the health problems throughout the world. Much of the reason is because in rural areas of developing countries, the only water source for people to wash with and drink from is often a badly polluted shallow well (less than 10 feet deep) or mud-hole used by both animals and humans. In those areas where there’s actually a stream or river, they’re often polluted as well, because animal and human wastes are emptied directly into it without proper treatment.
This campaign raised $20.
That money is hard at work in the field.
100% of the money raised by this campaign is being used to bring clean water to those in need. In 21 months we’ll be able to show you exactly where the money went and who it helped.
