The Birthday Gift of Giving

Thank you for joining Rachel Ma in celebrating her 18th birthday by celebrating new life for children in South Sudan. Your gift is meaningful and significant for these children, who will soon have access to clean water, hygiene training, and education. Your generous gift means that children can be healthy, and will have rest from the daily burden of fetching heavy loads of water. They will have opportunity to go to school, to play, and to build a better future. Thank you for making this incredible journey with children in South Sudan!

Help me provide clean water, hygiene training, and education for children in South Sudan on my 18th birthday!

My name is Rachel and I'm your typical city girl. I'm privileged, carefree, and I've certainly never gone through a day being hungry or thirsty.

But that's not how it is for children in South Sudan, where 50% of the population lives in poverty. For them, clean water is inaccessible. Education is unreachable. They walk miles every day only to collect contaminated water that carries disease and is potentially deadly. Their community, their schooling, and their future are all sacrificed, and their lives are in peril.

But it doesn't have to be this way, and you can help make a difference.

Clean water is life. Clean water breaks poverty, sickness, and hunger. It brings health, community, and education.

The benefits are immediate and dramatic. People, especially women and girls, do not have to walk great distances to fetch water each day. Water-borne illness is reduced, or even eliminated, especially among children. Children have opportunity to go to school for the first time. Women have time for productive activities like caring for children, improving their homes, farming, or even starting small businesses.

HOPE International Development Agency has been working in communities of South Sudan since 2009, providing safe drinking water and education to impoverished families. With your help, more lives can be transformed.

It costs just $150 to provide a child with clean water, hygiene training and education.

For my 18th birthday, I'd like the gift of giving. Would you support me and help the children of South Sudan become educated, healthy, and free? Any amount of donation and prayers you can offer will make a change.

I thank you in advance for your generosity and kindness. Updates will be posted on my blog: www.momentswithrae.com
