Here’s something I think about often: water. We use it so much for daily life. Brushing our teeth, washing our dishes, washing our clothes, washing our bodies, keeping hydrated . . . Do you ever stop and wonder what life would be like with very little to no access to clean water??
We bloggers at the Village Green Network are working together with a Charity Water, a non-profit organization, this Christmas season to help bring fresh, clean water to the people of Cambodia. Clean water is an issue all around the world, and Charity Water works year-round to bring safe water to people in need – yes, all over the world.
You see, when you bring people access to clean water, what you are doing is enhancing their quality of life, truly. As the video below explains, water touches every part of a community.
What Is Charity Water?
Since 2006, Charity Water has benefitted communities all over the world by providing them with clean water. This comes in several forms: filtration systems, rainwater catchments, and of course, building wells.
We bloggers here at Village Green Network teamed up with Charity Water because we see the good work going on in this organization, aiming to improve the lives of people all over the world. We share these values! We both aim to better the health and wellbeing of people everywhere, and together we can help make it happen this Christmas season.
How can I help?
This particular campaign raises funds for Charity Water’s campaign based in Cambodia. The people in this part of the world have access to plenty of water in their region, but there are not enough filtration systems to ensure that the water is drinkable and free of disease and contaminants.
Out of the 14.8 million people in Cambodia:
67% have no adequate sanitation.
33% have no access to clean water.
23% are below the poverty line.
When you donate to this Charity Water campaign, the money pays for BioSand Filters for families in Cambodia.
When you donate $15, you provide clean water to one person. And for a donation of just $65, you can pay for a BioSand Filter for one family in Cambodia.
BioSand filters are natural water filters, designed to eliminate a whopping 99% of all residential water bacteria. Each filter will stay with the family who receives it, and will continue supplying them with fresh water. You will even be able to see the communities the filters go to via GPS tracking and photos.
How Much Money Does Charity Water Need?
We set a goal to raise $50,000 for Charity Water this holiday season.
A donation of $15 will help Charity Water help one person retain access to water, but a $65 donation will provide an entire family with a BioSand Filter.
If we achieve our goal, Charity Water will help over 700 families get water filters in Cambodia. What a truly wonderful gift – the gift of fresh, clean water!
Please help this holiday season.
Our Charity Water campaign ends December 31st, so head on over now and help us show love and compassion to the people of Cambodia. Thank you so much for your generosity. It never goes unrewarded.
