BENEFITING: HUMANITY FIRST USA

Al Hirani

THE STORY:

Humanity First at the University of Texas at Austin, or Humanity First-Texas Chapter, is very excited to announce the launch of our first fundraising project, Water For Life. More than 30% of people around the world do not have access to safe drinking water, while over 40% lack proper sanitation. These high numbers lead to excessive diseases and deaths that require proper means of accessing clean water supplies.

Due to this current water poverty on the rise, Humanity First-TX is collecting donations that will be sent to Humanity First USA to assist villagers in having to access safe and clean drinking water. We hope to make the access of water a right to all, not a privilege.

Currently, Humanity First's Water For Life program is working in 18 countries and has improved over 50,000 villages, or over 2.7 million villagers, in countries such as Benin, Burkina Faso, Mali, Sierra Leone, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda and Pakistan. Though the type of technology used in each area varies, some methods that have been used include: water-hand pumps, filtration pumps, sanitation, gravity fed systems, and family filtration units. With these methods, Humanity First has been able to find deviceful methods to provide water to multiple parts of a village, harvest natural rainwater, and find cutting-edge solutions to purifying and filtering water available to local communities.

We want to do our part in this project with the help of our supporters by collecting donations that will be funded towards the Water For Life campaign. The donations link will be coming soon!

We want to thank you all for considering our campaign and supporting our goal in improving the access to clean and safe water for humanity!

Alhamdulilah, as a nascent organization novelly supporting the greater and already well-established Humanity First USA organization (and their philanthropic initiatives that range all throughout the world), this is truly a wonderful initiative that you guys are supporting financially and I more than glad to help out with however little I can! Water is one of humanity's most basic resources and to hear that some less-than-fortunate people in needy and/or third-world nations are not getting the clean water they need for sanitation and survival (or having only access to dirty water at that) is honestly heartbreaking! Let's keep on doing what we can at the local level to help Humanity First make a real difference with their work in installing devices in these affected nations, that will allow more people more access to clean, safe water!! 4 years ago
