Translation: "Hi, my name is Lien-Hua! 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!!"
Age: 10 months
From: Akesu City, Xinjiang Province, China
Likes to: Eat, play with her feet
Gets clean water: At the Akesu City Child Welfare Institute where she lives , and where Splash installed and maintains a water purification system.
Why clean water matters to her: As a newborn, Lien-Hua had giardia, a waterborne illness that causes diarrhea and dehydration and can be life-threatening for children under 5. Now that her orphanage has clean water all the time, she is far less likely to become re-infected.
Why Splash: Children like Lien-Hua 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 Lien-Hua's team with your own fundraiser for Splash, and share Lien-Hua'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!
