WATER IS LIFE AND THE LIVING NEED WATER
HELLOOO and thanks for checking out my fundraiser and I hope you consider helping my cause. I’m headed to Tamale Ghana this December to help improve the poor water quality in one of the villages there. Local resources and simple technologies will be used for the water treatment and the local people will be taught how to use them. The system will be made to service the villagers long after my team and I leave for many lives of clean water.
-1.8 million people die each year from preventable waterbourne disease. 90% are children under the age of 5.
-The water and sanitation crisis claims more lives through disease than any war claims through guns
Water is one of the few necessities to life. Many people in Africa and all around the world are unable to access safe, palatable water. Any little change today makes a difference tomorrow. Please help me make a long-lasting difference to the lives of these villagers and consider making a donation to this cause.
please note: CWS is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation. All donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
"What truly makes the CWS idea new and innovative is that we implement for-profit water businesses that are owned and operated by the communities we serve and use low-cost local technologies. This distinctive combination empowers people in rural areas to take control of their own water quality. As a result CWS is uniquely positioned to provide a sustainable source of safe drinking water in rural areas."
