771 million people in the world live without clean water. That's one in 10 people in the world. Each year, over 3 million people die of waterborne illnesses, and most of them are children. Our Friends at Innovate Learning recorded a short video to explain the problem, and we want to help with a solution. Watch the video here:https://www.charitywater.
Some people walk for hours each day just to collect dirty water for their family, but they need it to survive.
We will be carrying water to raise awareness about the problem. The local press has been invited to attend the event, and we hope you come and join us too.
We are collecting money to help drill a well in a community that desperately needs clean water. We can't help everyone, but we can make a difference for one community. We can also help raise awareness so others help too! Money can be brought in to Cape Christian Academy this week or next week, and family and friends from anywhere around the world can donate through the link above. Administrative overhead and credit card fees are covered through other means by the non-profit that we are working with, Charity:Water. 100% of the money donated will go toward clean water in a needy community.
Come help us on Monday, May 22nd at 1:30pm, as we raise awareness of the water crisis that affects many people around the world !
