Clean and safe water is such a scarce resource for so many, including in Sierra Leone. Mothers, children, the sick, and indeed entire communities suffer from inadequate and unhealthy water in far too many communities of Sierra Leone.
That’s why this month, with our partner there, Faith Healing Development Organization, Bread and Water for Africa® will be drilling a much-needed well in Waterloo Community Sierra Leone to provide clean, safe water not only to the school where it will be located, but to a nearby clinic where uncontaminated water is critical to survival of the patients, as well as the community as a whole.
We have launched a 14 for 14 Matching Grant Challenge to raise the necessary funds – just $14,000 – to build this critically needed well. This week, as World Water Day was celebrated on Sunday, March 22, there are so many reasons why this well is vital to this Waterloo community – including the 14 we are listing on our website through March 30. 14 facts for $14,000 life saving dollars. Every dollar will be matched and will bring life-saving water to an entire community. We are working to raise awareness about the plight of so many that suffer from a lack of clean water with 14 important facts and raise $14,000 to drill that well.
Learn more facts about the necessity of clean and accessible water, and join us in our mission to ensure that the residents of the small village of Waterloo have something we all here in the United States take for granted – a steady supply of clean, safe water.
