Southern Ethiopia - WORLD WATER DAY 2017
Donate to give clean water to one person in Bonke
Of the 80 million people who live in rural Ethiopia, 51% lack access to clean water, and 72% lack access to proper sanitation.
Since 2000, HOPE International Development Agency has helped 300,000 rural Ethiopians gain access to clean water, right in their communities in southern Ethiopia.
Within the next 5 years, 100,000 more people in southern Ethiopia will gain access to clean water. When clean water is present, families are able to focus on improving their lives through health education and hygiene training. They are also able to increase their income by participating in self help groups that provide mutual support, income-earning skills training, and low-interest loans that enable women to start businesses.
Given the remote and rugged terrain of southern Ethiopia, it costs $750 to provide clean water for one family. That's just $125 per child or adult, for a lifetime of clean water and all that comes with it.
You can give one child clean water, for life, for just $125.
Donate to help indigenous families
Nearly 5.6 million people do not have access to clean water in areas where HOPE International Development Agency is working among indigenous families.
Close to 75 percent of the population depends on farming for their survival.
Preventable illnesses, such as diarrhea, are among the top five causes of illness and death. Malnutrition is also currently a big problem for families.
You can help ensure that indigenous families in the Philippines gain access to clean water, and training and support that will create a sustainable source of food and income.
Donate to give a child clean water, education, and hygiene training
Life has been horribly difficult for children in South Sudan. They desperately need the kindness friends of HOPE International Development Agency can give.
Many of these children, like Nyanath, have lived through the trauma of armed conflict.
Some, like Deng, have lost loved ones or friends - something no child should have to go through.
All of these children have experienced the suffering that drinking dirty water can cause.
None of these children has had the opportunity to sit in a classroom and learn the skills that will free them from poverty. It does not cost much for you to become a child’s friend. However, as you can see, it costs a child far more if they do not have a friend. Providing one child with clean water, education, and hygiene training costs $150.
You can become a friend to a child in desperate need by giving what you can to help provide a child with what they need to become healthy, educated, and free from poverty.
You can help give a child clean water, education, and hygiene training for as little as $25.
Donate to give a biosand water filter to a family in India
Having water can be as deadly as not having water. In many communities, water is only available every few days, at community taps. The water is often contaminated and can cause serious illness or even death.
You can give an easy-to-make and maintain biosand water filter that purifies contaminated water and ensures that clean water is available for a family, right at home.
You can give a biosand water filter to a family in India for as litle as $60.
Donate to give clean water to one person in Pachalum
Mothers in Pachalum, Guatemala, are worried, and for good reason. “My children drink contaminated water,” says 25-year old Rubidia, knowing that there’s literally nothing she can do about the skin infections caused by the water they gather.
Catarina, a 30-year old mother, experiences chronic back pain from carrying water containers every morning that weigh as much as 10 to 20 kilograms when full. Her bigger concern, however, is that her children are constantly sick from drinking the contaminated water from their current water hole.
HOPE International Development Agency is helping Rubidia, and Catrina gain access to safe drinking water. When the water system is complete, safe water will be piped right into Pachalum, saving mothers, and their children, a lot of time, stress and sickness.
You can give clean water to one person in Pachalum for as little as $80.
