CHANGE A WOMAN’S LIFE IN SAHEL BY SUPPORTING THE WATER PROJECT

NIG2012067271_revA

The Sahel is a narrow strip of land in Africa right below the Sahara Desert. Because of its location, this area is prone to drought and famine. Even worse, access to clean water is extremely rare and many women are suffering and in poverty because of it. Women and their young girls spend up to four hours every day – in 110 degree heat – solely on collecting water for their families. As you can imagine, this causes severe fatigue, giving the women little energy for other daily tasks. Often women are physically hurt by being pulled into wells, and even after water is retrieved many women are susceptible to disease because the water is contaminated with animal waste and other pollutants. CharityWater has set a $4M goal to help these women acquire clean water, and so far almost $500,000 has been raised. You can help this project – or even create your own campaign – through the Water Project here and change a woman’s life. Watch the campaign video below!
