Provide Safe Water
One well for a village
American Refugee Committee
In war and conflict zones, something as simple as finding water gets complicated. Women and children often walk a mile or more to get to water. And the water they find may be unsafe and cause disease. 6,000 people a day – most of them children – die from water-borne disease. Something as seemingly simple as clean water can prevent thousands of deaths.
Your gift of $3,000 will provide a new well and a safe source of water for a town or village. From digging a well - to teaching a community how to keep it clean – to distributing water containers – your gift provides people with their most basic need. Clean water. Instead of the latest fad that’s forgotten in a few months, why not give a loved one the gift of knowing that they’re allowing a community to drink for years to come.
