Imagine watching your baby painfully suffer because the
water you gave her was full of parasites. Imagine a child watching her mother
lie too weak to move because the water she collected to sustain her life, is the
very thing that is killing her.
Families in Kenya walk an average of 7 miles daily to
collect water for the day. A 5 gallon bucket of water weighs 40 pounds. Once
they arrive, that water source they have walked to, may or may not be
contaminated. 80% of the deaths in Kenya come from water born illnesses.
It’s a vicious cycle. Water is the life of all of God’s
creatures, but this water is killing the people of Kenya.
There is an answer,
but they need our help...
My goal this year is
to raise $1500.00 to apply toward a
community well and “bridge” with a community in need in the country of Kenya.
The 410 Bridge goal there is to build many wells. This well will be a community
well. Unlike the small, residential well in your backyard, this community well
will service thousands of people and will disperse to local schools and
hospitals. The well, costing $30,000, will consist of a 300 foot bore hole, sufficient
sized storage water towers, and a sizable pump to begin servicing a community
of 40,000 + people.
Your support is appreciated!
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.
