Our Message

We have decided to support the RunForH2O event on Saturday, June 15th 2019, 5KM run in South Vancouver to bring hope to approximately 142 poor families (approx 850 people) in the village of Cosibal, Guatemala, that don't have access to clean water. 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. 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.
