As we approach another World Water Day this March 22, ADRA Canada is renewing our commitment to bring safe water to more villages in our world. We are asking for your partnership to reach our goals. By setting up a monthly donation to ADRA you can help us bring life-saving water to people in need.
Until recently, this small village in the northern region of Laos had a huge problem accessing water. The only way for the people living here to collect water was to make a treacherous journey down a steep mountain path to the stream below. The trip up the hill with heavy water buckets was extremely difficult. Being downstream from other villages, the water that they collected was often contaminated with soap and other pollutants.
This is typical for communities all over the world. The World Health Organization estimates that 773 million people in our world are currently without access to safe water for drinking and cooking. Many children get sick every day simply from drinking water. With immune systems already weak from poor nutrition, some do not recover.
Every 15 seconds a child dies from a preventable waterborne disease.
A donation of $30 a month can give a community ongoing clean water.
A donation of $35 a month will help bring sanitation and hygiene.
A donation of $52.50 a month can provide a water storage tank to help families have water to irrigate their kitchen gardens during the dry season.
