Did you know that a person can live for thirty days without food
but only three days without water? Of all of the problems around the world, the
one that most likely affects the greatest amount of people suffering in poverty
is the lack of clean water.
I stumbled across this
fund raiser and felt like I wanted to do my part and introduce you to The Water
According to the Water Project, there are nearly 1 billion people
worldwide that do not have clean water to drink. More than 6,000 children die
each day. Most children under the age of 5, from diarrheal diseases caused by
unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation facilities.
together one person at a time we can end the poverty of clean water. One way
that we can help is to raise the money necessary to build wells and as well as
all that it entails to complete the project. There is no amount that is considered too small
to help toward the cause. “As little as $10.00 will provide clean water for one
person"(TWP). You may consider your contribution as being insignificant
but once combined with the efforts of others, the rewards grow expediently.
According to WHO (World Health Organization)
every $1 invested in water and sanitation, there is an economic return of
between $3 and $34(Par. 12)! The lives of hundreds and maybe thousands can be
greatly enhanced by the building of just one well.
Did you know nearly 1 billion people don't have safe water to drink?
Together, we can change that. Let's fund a new source of drinking water for those who suffer needlessly without it!
Our gifts will be used to construct or rehabilitate a water project, like a well or sand dam, in Africa. We'll see pictures, GPS coordinates, and updates as they come in from the actual water project we fund so we can celebrate the results along with the community we help.
The Water Project, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization unlocking human potential by providing clean, safe water to communities around the world who suffer needlessly without.
Working with local partners in countries like Kenya, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, South Sudan, and Uganda, we build long lasting water projects that are organized, owned and managed by the communities receiving them.
Together, with our partners we identify, implement, report on and follow up on every project. Then we share the whole story with you to inspire confidence in the work being done and the impact it has.
