We Have a Matching Donation

We are so grateful to have a donor who has stepped forward and offered to match every donation made to the Malawi Water Project before December 31st, to a maximum of $10,000.
 
If you haven’t already done so, then don’t miss the opportunity to donate soon so that your donation can be doubled! That’s right doubled!
 
This donation could not have come at a better time as we have been experiencing serious health concerns in the villages near our Biosand Filter Production Facility. Doctors Without Borders has set up a tent outside the local hospital to treat patients with potentially deadly cholera. Unfortunately, this disease seems to strike at the hottest time of the year leaving patients with high fevers, uncontrollable diarrhea and dehydration in a tent with no air conditioning in 45 degree weather.
 
Our team has been working hard to make sure the surrounding villages have access to clean water and sanitary living conditions so they don’t experience these horrendous outbreaks in the future.
 
We would really like to arm as many communities as possible over the next year with knowledge about proper sanitation and hygiene and provide them with Biosand Water Filters so they have access to clean water.

 

Blessings with villagers

 

 

Lack of access to clean water has lead to a cholera outbreak in nearby villages.  Cholera can lead to death if left untreated.

We also would like to provide Biosand Filters to communities located on Lake Malawi. Families are drinking untreated water from the lake. These communities aren’t able to have wells drilled on their land, because there aren’t any roads and the drilling equipment is too heavy to bring by boat. The filters turn disease and parasite laden lake water into safe drinking water.

Your kind donation will be put to good use and provide significant benefits. I’m continually reminded how fortunate we are to have clean drinking water by turning on our tap. Our goal is to bring clean water and teach proper sanitation and hygiene to as many people living in remote areas of Malawi as possible. Together, we can help villagers protect themselves from devastating water borne diseases.

If you would like further information about our activities, please send me an email at helen@malawiwaterproject.com or phone me at 403-271-5924.

All donations will be matched up to $10,000 until the end of the year!  So join us this Holiday Season to help ensure more families can stay happy and healthy.
