Water is the drop of life...
THE NEED FOR WATER: Water: We all need it. We need it for drinking, cooking, and bathing. We need it to grow crops, support animals, and for proper sanitation. We need it for industry, for energy, for fun and for life. Water is absolutely vital for life.
IN HAITI: In the rural village of Rantlamouaie water was only available at two water holes and testing showed the water to be contaminated, which could create severe health risks to the people. The protozoa, viruses, and/or bacteria are naked to the human eye but when swallowed, these microorganisms move into the intestine, where they can reproduce causing many life-threatening health problems, such as diarrhea. In September of 2014 our partner, Aztech Technologies, installed a water purification unit.
IN ZIMBABWE: There are 4 wells in the village of Chikandakubi which need to be pumped by hand in order to get water. These wells are in use just about every hour of the day which creates a heavy toll on its mechanisms and parts. To Love a Child funds go to keep these wells working. We will be bringing electricity to one of the wells in the near future.
