Embrace Relief’s “Water Wells” campaign in Africa
Embrace Relief began its “Water Wells” campaign in 2011. Since then, with the help of its volunteers and sponsors, 150 water wells have been built in regions with little or no access to drinking water. These wells are currently functioning to help ease the difficulty of obtaining clean water for the locals in these regions.
Clean drinking water is difficult to find for more than 1 billion people around the world. The lack of clean water takes a toll on the people in such regions. Without water infrastructures, people are forced to spend most of their time searching for water.
The lack of clean drinking water causes people living in these regions to travel long distances to other regions to obtain water. This is more difficult in some countries where poverty limits the means of travel. People living in countries such as Kenya and Haiti have to walk 3-5 miles to get clean water. Whatever they procure, they have to carry back.
Most of the water is obtained and carried by children and women. Instead of going to school, children have to carry water as part of their chores. If a household doesn’t have a child, the woman is expected to carry the water. This causes large numbers of children to be uneducated.
Building water well is the best solution to this problem. By building wells in regions, which have little access to water, the locals do not have to spend unnecessary time searching for clean water and the children do not have to sacrifice their educations just to quench their thirsts.
You can help us build water wells by donating to an existing campaign or by starting your own campaign. You can start a campaign and spread the word to your friends and family to raise funding for your own campaign. To start a new campaign, you may submit a form from the link below. You can contribute any amount you want. All of the donations are added up until we have enough to build a well.
If you donate $500 or more, we will send you a photo of the water well that was constructed with your donation. If you donate a water well in full, we will send you a Photo and Video of the water well along with the well’s ID Form. A water well takes about 3 months to be constructed.
