BENEFITING: Childrens Hopechest, Inc.
We are so close to being fully funded (total funds needed: $21,700) we only need $4,000 more before we can begin constructing a latrine facility equipped with running water. That means six flushing toilets, two shower stalls and a couple of sinks. That means sanitation, a decrease in risks posed by contaminated water and a safe, clean place to shower.
Please help! We have seen amazing growth and change in our Woliso, Ethiopia CarePoint community over the past three years. Our children are healthier, stronger and thriving in school. Because of people like you, our kids now have access to clean drinking water. Let's give them another gift- a dignified bathroom. Please donate and share this page. Let's make a difference! (If 4,000 people donate just $1--we will get there. Or if one company donates $4,000, we will get there!!)
"Mommy, I just went to the bathroom like a dog!" my Ethiopian-born, American-raised son exclaimed as he exited the rickety stick-hewn structure situated on a hillside. For him, this wobbly makeshift latrine was a curious novelty. A one-time use during our visit. For our 180 CarePoint kids in Ethiopia it is life. It is degrading. They deserve better. They deserve dignity. -Kristen Pillitteri, Woliso CarePoint Partnership Co-Leader
"Did you know that 60% of the world's population doesn't have access to the best innovation in human health? That's six out of ten people without a toilet. It is time to change that. You can be the change. Your money is guaranteed to help these kids. We've seen it first-hand. Join us and please help us meet our goal. -Lacey Yantis, Woliso CarePoint Partnership Co-Leader
"It is not natural to see humans pooping under trees and into holes, in my opinion. Yes, we may have been doing that before the 1900s but in today's technologically advanced world, using drains to lead away from drinking water and homes is much more healthier-- a little sanitation goes a long way. And we're almost ready to change this in Woliso, Ethiopia." -Aaron Blank, CEO of The Fearey Group, one of the Seattle-based company's investing in the Woliso CarePoint
