Water 4 Life completed...

Do you remember the Water 4 Life campaign that I spearheaded in December 2009?
Do you remember that together we raised $5,325 for water projects?

I have exciting news for you. I found out that the water projects were completed last month and the money we raised contributed to three different projects in Ethiopia. Click here for details.

Thank you again for contributing to this campaign. I am sure that in Main Gorit, Giratwedigodif and Maimelhis villages, the people are grateful for your support. They can now enjoy access to clean water!

“Women and children here used to walk up to two hours to collect water for their families. Even then, each family member had to make do with just five liters of water per day for drinking, bathing, cooking and everything else. The water was not safe to drink and often made people sick. Thanks to your help, people here are walking significantly less every day to collect water. On average, they’re less than 15 minutes from their water project, which means each family now can use up to 15 liters per person per day! And most importantly, the water they bring home each day is also safe enough to drink.”
