Protecting Tigrean Refugees with Clean Water

Recently, the Ethiopian government launched a military offensive against a rebellious regional government. Because of the war crisis in Ethiopia, there are close to 100,000 Tigreans that have been displaced. The conflict has created a great humanitarian crisis threatening the life of innocent Tigreans.

An area in eastern Sudan has become a temporary home of tens of thousands of Tigrean refugees who have fled their own country.

In the refugee camp, no clean water source exists. Refugees are sleeping in makeshift tents and in abandoned buildings, some even sleeping outside with no shelter. In many cases children and parents have been separated. Due to lack of safe water supply, the refugees have been suffering from water borne communicable diseases.

Yet we can make a difference in the lives of these refugees. By distributing water filters, we can save lives and help them stay strong during these difficult times. Would you partner with us as we come alongside the Tigrean refugees?

Special Need for Those Affected by Hurricane Eta

YOUR SUPPORT COUNTS.

HELP NOW. Hondurans need access to clean and safe water.

confirmed deaths

million directly affected

people missing

bridges down, cutting off communities

From November 3rd to 5th, 2020, Hurrican Eta brought heavy rains to much of Central America. Honduras was especially impacted because they already had major flooding. Hurricane Eta was very slow moving and the continual heavy rains caused many mudslides, washing away many homes and cutting off communities from much needed support.

We believe that we can provide hope in this situation. We have many partners already in the country that we can equip with clean water solutions. We are focusing on distributing VF100 Water Filters, which were certified by the WHO and named best for disaster relief by the HIF. By donating, you will be able to provide those in need with clean water when everything else was washed away.

Would you partner with us to provide hope to those in need?

Kenya - Providing WASH Knowledge and Water Filters

300,000 children under 5 die annually from diarrheal diseases.

One of the most basic human needs is water.  Water is important for almost every aspect of life including drinking, washing, bathing, farming, and more.  Rural Africa has very limited sources of water that are clean, adequate, and accessible.  The majority of available water sources tend to be unprotected shallow wells, rivers, dams, and springs.  Consequently, many children and adults suffer from water borne diseases including cholera, typhoid, and amoeba.  More than 300,000 children under 5 die annually from diarrheal diseases due to poor sanitation, poor hygiene, or unsafe drinking water – over 800 per day. 

 

 

Earth And Water works in western Kenya with the mission to bring life to people through the most valuable resource on Earth – water. They have initiated small business development projects, school and household water filtration systems, well drilling, and various water development projects.  Earth And Water works to help communities in crisis by providing accessible and uncontaminated water sources along with education about water hygiene and sanitation.

 

Their first focus was drilling wells for rural communities, orphanages, and churches. These wells are hundreds of feet deep and provide clean water to those in need. Yet with the high cost of drilling wells, they are also looking to distribute more VF100 Home Filters as well as provide WASH training. Would you partner with Earth And Water so that they can reach even more communities with WASH training and clean water?

    Fighting the Cholera Outbreak with Clean Water

    Clean water is a need around the world, but sometimes there are disasters that make this need even more critical. The Yemen Relief and Reconstruction Foundation (YRRF) who are taking action to help in Yemen. Currently, the country is experiencing the largest recorded cholera outbreak with over 2.3 million suspected cases. Additionally, various other water borne diseases are common and are resulting in malnutrition, especially among the children.  Providing clean water is key to preventing the spread of cholera and diarrheal diseases as well as improving the population’s health and reducing the risk of malnutrition.

    Yemen Relief and Reconstruction Foundation is working to reduce morbidity and mortality in the hardest hit communities in Yemen. They are doing this by distributing Village Water Filters in addition to food and other supplies. The YRRF has distributed water filters to multiple areas including to Internally Displaced Populations. The members of the communities who received the water filters were able to provide clean water to their families, ensuring that they stay healthy and their children have a much lower risk of becoming malnourished.  

    They have had a great impact in Yemen, but they have received even more requests from multiple communities for water filters. The YRRF has goals to expand their reach with clean water. They hope to scale up access to clean water, but can not do this without your support. Would you like to partner with us as we come alongside the Yemen Relief and Reconstruction Foundation?

    COVID-19 has affected millions of people around the world. Some are fortunate to have kept their jobs, but others struggle to make ends meet. We especially are thinking of those in developing countries who might not have access to basic sanitation and hygiene facilities or adequate medical care. They may even lack clean water for washing their hands or other cleaning essentials. With this in mind, we have decided to expand our work to also distribute masks. With only a dollar, you can provide a mask to protect someone from the virus.

    Can you spare a dollar to help others in need during this uncertain time?
