Please Help Us Provide Clean Water
Clean water sustains human life and is vital for human health. Unfortunately, due to bad economics or poor infrastructure, millions of people worldwide (most of them children) die from diseases associated with inadequate water supply, sanitation and hygiene. Forty-two percent of the Haitian population still lacks access to safe drinking water. Water scarcity and water-borne diseases are among the leading causes of death and child malnutrition, causing a hindrance to their intellectual and physical development. In addition, 56% of the population needs more than a 30-minute walk to get water, a task predominantly completed by women and children. Please help us to raise funds to assist our friend Ebenson Verdule and Mercy Land Orphanage install a clean water well in their community. This will provide safe water, not only for the Verdule family and the children in their care, but also the surrounding community. Providing clean water can change the lives of the people in this area and improve their quality of life. Visit mercylandorphanage.org for more info.
