HAF’s project to bring clean drinking water to five Moroccan villages is featured as part of GlobalGiving’s « Fill the Glass » fundraiser in celebration of World Water Day. Your donation before Sunday, March 22nd could help HAF earn an additional $1,000 in project funds…we are already off to a great start!
Just $15 provides clean drinking water for one person – every drop counts! What small thing can you do today to contribute to this life-saving effort? Give up your morning coffee run and brew it at home? Walk instead of taking a taxi? Bring your lunch to work instead of buying it? Let us know what you are doing to help bring clean drinking water to Moroccan families by leaving a comment below (you’ll help inspire others to do the same!) and then make your donation online.
- World Water Day is on March 22nd – it is an initiative that grew out of the 1992 United Nations Conference on environment and development
- Over one billion people worldwide do not have access to safe drinking water
- An astounding 1.8 million children die every year from water related diseeases
- In Morocco, an estimated 40 percent of rural inhabitants lack full access to clean drinking water
Thanks to the continued generosity of donors like you, HAF has already started implementation of three clean drinking water projects – benefitting approximately 1,000 people. Raising an additional $11,000 will bring clean drinking water to two more villages, drastically improving the public health conditions of a total of 1,600 people for this project. Thank you for your support!
