Access to clean, safe drinking water is crucial to life. One in five deaths under the age of 5 worldwide is due to a water-related disease.
Thanks to your help over the last 12 months, we were able to make a difference and bring sustainable clean water solutions to:
the Village of Lizulu, Malawi where the pipes from the solar pump are bringing life-giving water to the Lizulu orphan-feeding center, the local secondary school and three nearby homes that pay for access which contributes to the long-term maintenance of the pump.
the Village of Huruma and the New Dawn Education Centre in Kenya where storage tanks have been installed to provide a source of clean water to the community, a purification system repaired to provide safe drinking water for students, and a rain catchment system created to give sufficient water for irrigation of the school’s sustainable food supply.
We simply couldn’t have accomplished these things without your generosity and commitment to giving up a few mochas a month to provide clean water in Africa.
