I AM PARTICIPATING IN Generosity DC
IN SUPPORT OF BREAD AND WATER FOR AFRICA
$251 RAISED
$2,500 GOAL
Water is a basic human need…..
In most villages in Sierra Leone, school-age girls and boys walk up to five miles a day to fetch water for their families. By the time they get back home they are physically exhausted from carrying 40-pound jugs of water on their heads. To make matters worse, many of these children are unable attend school regularly because they waste so much time just carrying water.
Imagine the terrible choice faced today by their mothers – water or an education for their children!
I will do my part….. I am running to help building a new water well in a small village of Nafami in Sierra Leone.
Please help me by donating to this WONDERFUL cause. Thank you!
