Water & Health is Hope
Fundraiser: Johanna Thornblad

It was on a holiday/cooperation trip with A Glimmer of Hope in 2008 that Joan and I learned first-hand about rural families in Ethiopia living without access to clean water, health care and basic education and how fragile their life situation was.

In Ethiopia disease spread through dirty drinking water, there is no health care to care for the sick, and harsh weather conditions can completely wipe out a family’s food supply…

It was life changing to understand that if we helped raise funds for Glimmer's work in Ethiopia, we could change this situation by helping Glimmer provide entire communities with the proper tools to transform their lives.

Since 2008 we have built 28 water projects together with Glimmer. From 2019 we will support not only water projects but also health, education and income generating projects such as micro-credits and livelihood training.

Please help us with a donation today — 100% of the funds raised go directly to change the lives of 100,000 people during 2019 and we will share the results with you on our website www.wateril.org

Thank you!
