BENEFITING: APUK PADOC COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM
HOURS PLEDGED: 10
The Apuk Padoc Community Development Organization is "The Machara Miracle Network" now. It's an organization founded by a couple of my friends, Sudanese young men who were sent as refugees to the US in 2001 and have subsequently worked like crazy to get degrees, make contacts and do everything humanly possible to put things together so they can go back and help their home communities. Money is, of course, a limiting factor.
Just one well near a family home has been proven to contribute significantly to the quality of life of that family, and multiple wells can exponentially increase the quality of life for entire communities. $325 will fund construction of a well and water purification unit for a family in S Sudan.
100% of all donations go directly to the cause. There are no paid administrative or office staff in the Machara Miracle Network.
