Our Message

We are taking part in the Sherwood Park RunForH2O event on Saturday, June 24th, 2017, a fun charity run to bring hope to poor families in Ethiopia without access to clean water. The low availability of drinking water and sanitation is one of the biggest contributing factors to rural poverty in Ethiopia. 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.


Your gift means a new life marked by hope for some of the most marginalized, vulnerable indigenous people in Ethiopia. Would you consider helping to bring hope and life to a child, a mother, or a family in Ethiopia by making a financial gift?

Thank you for your generosity; it is greatly appreciated.
