Operation Clean Water
Would you like to make a difference in the world? Well, you can by supporting Operation Clean Water. Operation Clean Water will raise money to build wells in small villages in sub-Saharan Africa for those people who do not have safe, clean drinking water.
The problem in Africa is not that there isn't enough water; the problem is that most of the water cannot be accessed. The reason being that most of the people in sub-Saharan Africa are too poor to build wells and pumps to access clean and safe drinking water. Lack of clean water causes a ripple effect in these villages. Most of the young girls in these villages have to walk many miles on foot with big containers to find clean water. Because these young girls must carry buckets of clean water back and forth, they have no time for school so they are never properly educated. In some communities the villagers have no access to clean water. They, therefore, use dirty and contaminated water to bathe, cook, and drink. The results are devastating. Many people get very ill and many others die. Diseases resulting from the use of unsafe water, such as cholera and botulism, are, according to Africare, "Africa’s most serious public health threat, causing 80 percent of the sicknesses and killing 5,000 children every day." That is horrific. The water is there in the ground, but these people need our help to get it out.
Clean water is something most of us take for granted but in sub-Sahara Africa, water is very precious. The water carried many miles from the wells is used for cooking, bathing, and drinking. Africare, in conjunction with the African Well Fund, has brought the relief that these people need and deserve by building many wells and pumps in villages in sub-Saharan Africa. These pumps and wells, flowing with clean, safe water, have saved the lives of thousands of men, women, and children. Through the money raised from generous donations, we will help build wells and water pumps for villages in sub-Saharan Africa that do not have clean water. At the same time, we will help to spread awarness through our events of the lack of clean water in Africa and the need for help.
Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also a very efficient way to support my fundraising efforts. Not sure about Africare and the African Well Fund? Both organizations are rated A+ and 94 cents out of every dollar goes to the building of wells and pumps. The other 6 cents go to administration.
