Jerry Can for a Family

Gives 1 Jerry can
Gift Description:
$25 donates a lightweight Jerry can for one family. Carrying heavy containers filled with water can be a daily chore for many in Africa. A gift of a lightweight water can simplifies this difficult task. Without proper water infrastructure, transporting water in containers is a challenging but necessary task. Often women and children bear this chore and must walk several miles to collect and bring 40-some pounds of water home. A lightweight water can helps women carry more water faster, freeing up their time to tend to the family, school or other business.
