On a holiday/cooperation trip with A Glimmer of Hope trip to Ethiopia in 2008, we learned first-hand about rural families living without any access to clean water.
We saw how collecting water consumed the better part of each day for women and many of the children, and we watched how they scooped up their drinking water from the same puddles their animals stepped in while they quenched their thirst.
We also learned that if we helped raise funds for A Glimmer of Hope’s work in Ethiopia, they have the tools to transform the lives of entire communities.
Please donate to our campaign, today to build our 27th water project in Ethiopia — 100% of funds raised go directly to the project — so every bit helps.
Joan & Johanna, Water is Life
