The Problem

Bring Clean Water to Kenya. Dig Wells, Save Lives. [img]http://www.givemeaning.com/UserFiles/Image/TheWaterProject.gif[/img] [size=16][b]The Problem:[/b][/size] [list] [*]More than 1 in 6 people in the world remain without access to safe drinking water. [*]In developing countries, about 80% of illnesses are linked to poor water and sanitation conditions. [*]1 out of every 4 deaths under the age of 5 worldwide is due to a water-related disease. [/list] There are lots of things that are not "right" with our world. Whether it is poverty, hunger, poor health, lack of education, or some other form of suffering, each wrong has devastating effects on billions of people's lives in the developing world. When you investigate the root cause of these ills, so many of the issues facing the world's poor can be traced to a lack of access to clean water. Simply bringing clean water can make a huge impact on a number of key issues in sub-Saharan Africa. It seems basic. It seems simple. And truth be told, the solution is. However, without public support and a concerted call to action, little may change. We believe that we all must act. We must give generously to organizations "in the field" bringing clean water to real people. We also believe it is essential to get involved in educating others, raising awareness and pressuring governments to act. No matter what issue you may be passionate about, it is likely a solution begins with water. [hr] [size=16][b]Our Proposal:[/b][/size] We feel called to action in response to crisis of water scarcity throughout the world. We have heard first-hand from the Africa Brotherhood Church in Kenya and The Sharing Way (our partners in the field) about the devastating effect the lack of clean drinking water is having in communities they serve. We have begun TheWaterProject.org and are working to raise money to dig wells and construct rain-water collection and filtration systems in many Kenyan communities. Each project constructed will provide clean drinking water and bring poverty and hunger relief to upwards of 1,500 people – not for one day, not for one week, but for years and years to come. We believe these essential, life-changing projects will help enable the ABC to demonstrate what love is all about. We believe these water projects will relieve suffering, open doors to education and economic development, and most importantly bring real hope. We're asking you to seriously consider how you might be a part of this work with us. Visit TheWaterProject.org to learn more. [hr] [size=16][b]How You Can Help:[/b][/size] Your donation will be used entirely towards the construction of a well in Kenya. Even a one time gift of $20 will bring water to a child in Kenya for more than 15 years! Your gift will change their life for good. Once the project goal is met, you’ll be able to track the progress of the water project on our site. [b]Join Today! Get Involved. Give Water… Save a Life![/b]
