Bringing Water to Ethiopia…again

I posted this at the first of the week, but then had more posts that moved it down the screen. This is something that I feel is really important that you see. So, I am reposting it:

I read a friend’s blog today about the Farmlands of Ethiopia. In this village, and so many others, the people have to walk a big distance to collect water that is unsanitary. This is their only option. There is no clean water available to them.

Here are some statistics from Living Water International:

1.1 billion people lack access to clean, safe water.
3 million people, most of them children under five, die every year from water-borne diseases.
A child dies every 15 seconds because of the lack of clean water.
As little as $1 can provide clean, safe water to 1 person for a year.

How can we not help these people?! I feel so selfish that I am not already. Go to this website and educate yourself on how you can be apart of the solution. Please do not ignore this or let this opportunity pass by. I would like to see if there could be something started here in E. Tennessee. Here is a way that you could help out on your own:

The H2O Project

Every 15 seconds a child dies because of the lack of clean water.

The Opportunity: As little as $10 can provide one person with a lifetime supply of clean water!

The H2O Project helps educate people about the global water crisis and offers an opportunity to make an impact by providing clean water to those in developing countries. For two weeks, make water your only beverage. Save the money that you would normally spend on sodas, coffee, sports drinks for two weeks.

At the end of the two weeks, contribute all of your money to Living Water International for the drilling of wells. Churches, youth groups, key clubs and other organizations have all participated in the H2O Project.

Questions? Call 281-207-7800 or 281-353-7809.
