SPONSORSHIPS NEEDED

Providing clean Water for the Children is one of our biggest desires. On our travels we found thousands of children with no excess to clean water. Water pump is available at some villages but still this is for some children a good 30 minute to one hour walk to get some clean cool water. According to the "Borgen Project research" Approximately 30,000 people die every year in Malawi from issues caused by dirty water, namely diarrhea, dysentery, parasitic infections and food and water-borne illnesses.​​​​​​"  This statistics does not even include other factors that is linked to the Water problem.  The following Direct factors will raise this mentioned number drastically if it can only be calculated.

 

MALARIA - Children collecting water at sunrise. Rivers and Lakes are super breed areas of the Malaria mosquito. 

MALNUTRITION- Local farmers plant before the rainy season, to harvest in the dry season. With the water crisis families are not able to make vegetable gardens at their homes for family use through the year. The result being living on the harvest of Maize as a main food sourse with no additional vegetables to provide the needed vitamins and mineral required to fight malnutrition in the children.(Food is nothing without hygiene | UNICEF Malawi)

COVID 19 and HYGIENE - Without clean water proper sanitation measures cannot be adhered to (Clean Water Is Crucial to Fight the Spread of COVID-19 (fairobserver.com)

ANIMAL ATTACKS - Collecting water is dangerous in areas where there is crocodiles ( malawi-crocodiles-make-fetching-water-a-life-threatening-experience/ )

The main factor people miss, Not only children are affected, but at the end ALL the children are effected. When a parent pass due to one or more of these factors, that child is left behind as an orphan. Life is difficult as it is, being a orphan is even worse. (Malawi Orphan fact sheet)

 

We as a Non Profit Organisation needs international Help to be able to assist the villages where we work. We need to stand together, take hands and make a difference. Water is a crutial factor in the life of every person. Immagine going without water for a week...

Please spread the word - WE NEED INTERNATIONAL HELP- to help the villagers in Malawi. One borehole can change the life of up to 200 people.
