BENEFITING: WATER FOR SOUTH SUDAN

Students for Humanity Gatrost

THE STORY:

Did you know that every 90 seconds, a child dies from from a waterborne disease? After reading A Long Walk to Water by Linda Sue Park, we discovered that 1-9 people worldwide do not have access to clean and safe water. In South Sudan woman and girls must walk up to 8 hours each day just to collect a bucket of water, which is often contaminated. We were shocked to learn about this and decided to take action to improve the lives of others. We realize that we take water for granted and use it without even thinking about it, while many people struggle just to find an amount to survive. For this reason, we formed a humanitarian club with the goal of raising awareness of this problem and raising funds to help build a well. Our goal is to raise $5,000.00 towards a well in South Sudan. Each new well has significant impacts on these villages and can help up to 200-300 people receive clean, fresh water.In order to meet our goal of raising $5000 towards the well we have conducted several fundraising activities and awareness campaigns on campus including “Water Wednesdays”. This activity is a weekly fundraiser and a way to educate others about the need for clean water around the world. Will you please help us reach our goal and help bring water to those who need it? With your donation, you can save a life and make a change.
