BENEFITING: Saha Global
EVENT DATE: Jun 18, 2013
Hello! Welcome to my fundraising page. As you may know, I am heading to Ghana this summer to implement a sustainable water treatment business in a rural community without access to clean drinking water. There are currently 1 in 8 people around the world who lack access to safe drinking water. Four million people die each year from preventable water-related diseases, and 90% of those deaths are children under five. In northern Ghana, half of the 1.8 million residents lack access to improved sources of drinking water. Due largely to this lack of access to safe water, 20% of children under five in northern Ghana are suffering from diarrheal disease.
My goal is to raise $3,000 that will go towards the supplies and resources required to implement the water treatment solution in the community. Thank you for helping me reach this goal!
