Sturdy Water Jugs

Gives 1 water jug
Gift Description:
$6 provides one family with a stout water jug. For a family lacking a safe water container, one of these sturdy jugs provides the means to store and transport clean drinking water safely. Carrying heavy containers filled with water can be a daily chore for many in Africa. 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.
