Gives 1 community deep-well pump
Gift Description:
Your gift of a deep-well pump provides easy access to clean water for one remote village and will drastically improve the well-being of the community. The reliable and robust pump makes a dramatic improvement for children, especially girls, in rural villages who often walk long, grueling miles to fetch water every day. This backbreaking chore requires thousands of hours of work, yet there is no guarantee the water brought back is safe to drink. With clean water nearby, women and children stay out of danger and are free to focus on their studies or their own careers. A pump will also provide clean water to the community, which will lessen the presence of waterborne diseases such as cholera, dysentery, and typhoid.
