Water 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.
We learned that collecting water consumed the better part of each day for the women and for many of the children too. And we watched how they would scoop up dirty, stinky water from the same puddles their animals were walking around in, only to bring it home to their families to drink... because there was no other option.
It was life changing for us to understand that if we helped raise funds for Glimmer's work in Ethiopia, we could change this situation by helping Glimmer provide these families with the proper tools to transform the lives of entire communities.
Since 2008 we've built nearly 30 water projects together with Glimmer, but we're not done yet. There are still many families in dire need of clean water. So, please help us with a donation today — 100% of the funds raised go directly to the new project and we will share the results with you on our website www.wateril.org
