Clean Water For Guatemala

My Message

The low availability of drinking water and poor sanitation is one of the biggest contributing factors to rural poverty in Guatemala.

Since 2013, RunForH2O has made a commitment to do what they can in Canada to help bring clean water to Guatemala. So far, Run For H2O has raised over C$325,000 to help build sustainable clean water systems for 6 communities in Guatemala, namely Pajuya (2013), Pachulum (2014), Xejuyup & Xoljuyup (2015), Sajchil & El Infiernito (2016) and Parrequená (2017). These communities with over 940 families (more than 5600 people) not only have life-saving needs met through provision of clean water for life, but also have improved health care, education and income-generating activities which help lift them from a life of poverty to self-reliance!

I have decided to participate again in the RunForH2O event on Saturday, Jun 16th 2018, a 5km/10km run in South Vancouver, to raise money to bring hope to more than 190 poor families (over 1,000 people) in Talaxcoc, Guatemala without access to clean water.

Would you be willing to help too? 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 $50, $100, $250, or however much you may be able to give? Each $100 helps provide one person with access to clean water for the rest of his/her life.

Please support my fundraising efforts by making a secure online donation using your credit card.

All donations go to HOPE International Development Agency, and will be used solely for building sustainable water projects in Guatemala. 

All contributions of $25 or more are tax deductible. 

With much gratitude for your support!
