In villages like El Naranjo, most homes have no clean drinking water or electricity. The trek to “buscar agua” (get water) could be as far as 7km each way. Children like Ariana* (pictured below) often drink less than 7oz of liquid per day and have trouble staying clean, with nowhere to bathe but contaminated rivers. Most also suffer from waterborne illnesses and parasitic infections.
Your donation helps us bring medicine, clothing, shoes, toys, and the loving care of dentists, nurses, and doctors to children like Ariana. Even more important, your gift helps us bring financial donations to help pipe potable drinking water into schools, as was the case with many of the kids you see on this page.
Children who wish to attend school must have government-issued shoes that cost $10 - you may send 5 children to school with only a $50 donation. Medications are also needed to combat parasites in the drinking water, and consistant vitamins will help the medications to be effective for longer periods of time. Please give what you can - anything will help.
Your 100% tax-deductible contribution to Corner of Love is a gift to the entire community of San Ramon and thousands of people living in villages where our mission teams and brigades serve. EIN No. 36-4612230
