It's that time of the year again, Runforh2o 2018 on Saturday, June 16th 2018 in South Vancouver! BRING THE KIDS (for 1km or toddler dash)!!! Join the SMH Emerg team and walk/run 5km with us, donate, volunteer to do first aid! $100 = 1 person gets clean water for life in the community of Talaxcoc, Guatemala! Thank you to everyone supported the run last year, the water project for the 180 families in Parraquena is complete, here is a thank you to you all from one of the families we visited: https://www.facebook.com/rainbowshwa/posts/10155895730340528 

There are 190 families in Talaxcoc (1140 women/children/men). The low availability of drinking water and sanitation is one of the biggest contributing factors to rural poverty in Guatemala. Farming families rely on rain to grow food, and there are long periods of drought each year without rain to water the soil. Women and children walk up to three or four hours each day to fetch scares water from streams for drinking, cooking, bathing, and cleaning. This water is dirty and causes frequent illness and death from waterborne disease. Children, especially girls, are unable to go to school because they need to fetch water each day. Life is a daily struggle for survival. A different life and future is possible for the families. Each $100 helps provide one person with access to clean water for the rest of their life. I would like to help at least 2 people in Guatemala get access to clean water this year. Your gift means a new life marked by hope for some of the most marginalized, vulnerable indigenous people in Guatemala. Would you consider helping to bring hope and life to a child, a mother, or a family in Guatemala by making a financial gift of $25, $50, $100, $250, or however much you may be able to give? Thank you for your generosity; it is greatly appreciated.
