There are three ways dirty water can devastate Isaac's life.
Dora, Isaac's mother, is scared because she’s already had to bury three children. Now, her only family is Isaac. That’s why she says “I think water holds my life.”
The good news is that there is one way you can protect 13 year old Isaac.
Your $28-per-child donation will help construct an underground pipeline from a bore hole.
A water reservoir and two water-points will put this clean safe water to 2,000 households.
Your gift of water will protect children like Isaac from the Three Threats in dirty water:
Threat 1 – Diarrhoea
Dirty water can cause diarrhoea that kills children like Isaac.
Threat 2 – School failure
Spending hours collecting water means children are too tired for school or miss it altogether and remain trapped in poverty.
Threat 3 – Poverty
With so much time spent collecting water, mums don’t have enough time left to earn income to keep their children safe and healthy.
We have developed a 4 step action plan to help keep children like Isaac safe from the devastating effects of dirty water.
Because it’s true – water does hold life.
Donate today to give the life-saving gift of clean water to a child like Isaac.
