Read Jody’s story here and her amazing quest to help people in Africa get one of the basic needs we take for granted. Water. A $20 donation will supply a person with water for 20 yrs. But any donation is welcome.
Unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation cause 80% of all sickness and disease and kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war. charity: water is a non profit organization bringing clean, safe drinking water to people in developing nations. 100% of the money goes to direct project costs. With the help of exemplary organizations on the ground and individuals here, we can drill wells and provide people with this basic, essential need.
“We were suffering so badly. And I would pray to God for help. I heard that they were coming to help us with a water pump and 10 latrines. And I would wake up and think I was dreaming. It could not be true.”
