Over the past decade, you have helped us bring clean water and education to rural Ethiopian communities who were at the margins of society. These amazing men and women have stepped up and transformed themselves against all odds, and we feel it is essential that we do whatever we can to help them prepare for the pandemic.
COVID-19 is expected to be more deadly in places like Ethiopia where there is already high levels of poverty and inequalities including malnutrition, poor health, water and sanitation infrastructure & services, and unequal access to information.
We are working with our partners here in Canada and in Ethiopia to put together an emergency COVID-19 response plan.
The time to act is now. Our goal is to first focus on the 12 different villages that we have brought water to over the past 5 years and to give these communities the necessary information to help slow the spread of the virus.
100% of your donation will be matched and will be going to support this COVID-19 response plan in communities you have helped us empower with clean water over the years.
Here is what the plan will include:
We hope you will join us again to answer the call from these marginalized communities whose voices often go unheard. Help us save lives today.
