Lack of access to clean and safe water is one of the major problems faced by the people in the communities we serve in. The lack of it has affected the future of the children and has led to loss of lives due to water related diseases. Because many families are under the care of old and weak grandparents, they cannot manage to walk the long distances to fetch water. It remains the task of the children to get water for their families early in the morning before they get to school. By the time they get to school, they are already exhausted and tired. This has affected their performance in class and many have lost interest in education because they fail to score the required marks to get promoted to the next classes. This also explains why many girls end up getting married at early ages and the rise in HIV/AIDS. It starts with water.
As FoHA our plan is to drill as many water wells as possible in every affected community to save lives. It costs $10,000 to drill a water well and we are working on raising this money as soon as possible. Chose today to save a life, Donate towards the water project.
