"Hi, my name is Alem! Thanks for your help! When you donate to Splash or join my team, you help me and other kids around the world have clean water!!"
From: Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
Likes to: Watch movies, play soccer
Gets clean water: At the AHOPE Child Development Center , where Splash installed and maintains a water purification system.
Why clean water matters to him: Alem is living with HIV and goes to the Center every weekday, where he can shower and also receive medication, meals, and counseling. Clean water is crucial to his ability to stay healthy and active.
Why Splash: Children like Alem have been left out of the equation when it comes to traditional international water relief efforts. So Splash's focus is solely on kids in poverty in urban areas. We are looking ahead to the Future of Water, for all kids.
How you can help: Donate to Splash today, join Alem's team with your own fundraiser for Splash, and share Alem's story with all your friends!
Bonus Prize: Members of the team that raises the most money will be entered in a drawing to win one of 10 Splash canteens!
