When your Heart is involved and you are willing to get your Hands dirty, we can all make a difference in the fight against scarce and contaminated drinking water, as well as hunger and poverty, for those in need.
"There is an interdependence between those who have and those who have not. The process of giving exalts the poor and humbles the rich. In the process, both are sanctified. The poor, released from the bondage and limitations of poverty, are enabled as free men to rise to their full potential, both temporally and spiritually. The rich, by imparting of their surplus, participate in the eternal principle of giving. Once a person has been made whole or self-reliant, he reaches out to aid others, and the cycle repeats itself."
President Marion G. Romney
WHERE WE ARE WORKING
Provide Wells In Villages
Help restore hours each day to a person’s life. Hours not spent on fetching water presents opportunity, especially for young girls and women who now have the chance to attend school regularly or care for their family.
For Small Crop Farmers
Assist farmers who are simply trying to meet the ever-growing demand for food production in and around their villages to sustain life.
According to the World Health Organization 1.8 billion people throughout the world lack access to healthy drinking water
That’s BILLION with a B! And with the projected population in Africa alone expected to double in the next 35 years, the need for clean drinking water only continues to grow.
Over 2 million deaths occur every year, due to illnesses directly related to contaminated drinking water. 90% of those deaths are children under the age of 5, as their bodies simply aren’t strong enough to fight off disease..
