BENEFITING: Living Water International
In 21 days, I'm going to be turning 21! Because I am living in the United States, this is a big year to celebrate! Why? Well, you know, now I can drink! (and I don't mean water)
But water is an issue. A big one.
"At any given time, half of the world's hospital beds are occupied by paitents suffering from a water-related disease. Nearly 90% of all the diseases IN THE WORLD are caused by unsafe drinking water, inadequate sanitation and poor hygiene."
So please help me celebrate my birthday with lots of drinks of clean water! I'm hoping to get at least 21 donations. Whatever you can give will make a difference! Thank you!
More facts from Living Water International: water.cc
-Many women spend 15-20 hours per week collecting water, walking up to 7 miles in dry seasons.
-Without easy access to water that is safe, countless hours are spent in water collection, household income is spent on purchasing water and medical treatment for water-related diseases. These factors contribute to keeping people trapped in poverty.
At Living Water International, we are addressing this most basic of needs by helping deprived communities acquire safe, clean water. Our goal is to substantially ease the global water crisis while addressing the root causes such as injustice, oppression, and abject poverty."
