Clean Water Projects

Description

The daily chore of fetching water is no small task in Sub-Saharan Africa. Women and children often walk as far as 4 miles to collect what water they can from a polluted, dirty, water source, full of parasites and bacteria. No single intervention has a greater overall impact upon public health than does the provision of safe drinking water. We finance, support, and participate in the construction of clean water projects to provide children and families in poverty with access to clean water through interventions like: drilled wells; rainwater catchment systems; piping systems to irrigate crops and improve access to clean water; purification equipment to treat water contaminated by bacteria and other waterborne disease-carriers; latrines to protect clean water sources; and much more. The lack of water is an often insurmountable obstacle to helping oneself. Your gift will bring relief to those who suffer needlessly from a lack of access to clean water and proper sanitation.
