Phase II - Clean Water Campaign

WATER AND HEALTH

“Nearly 90 percent of all diseases in the world are caused by unsafe drinking water, inadequate sanitation, and poor hygiene. Clean water and sanitation are among the most powerful preventative medicines for reducing child mortality. They are to diarrhea what immunization is to killer diseases such as polio: a mechanism for reducing risk and averting death.”
- United Nations Development Program, 2006

This year, on November 25, 2010 - Thanksgiving Day, with your help, we provided clean water to the children of Machao Orphanage. Many thanks to Stan Patyrak and John Baker of Living Water International who partnered with us and provided the drilling and hand pump. We were able to move forward with only 70% of the funds. That still left 30 percent or $2,898.00 that we had to raise. Good news. The members of Emmanuel Church in Burbank, California held a Thanksgiving Eve offering which covered the remaining balance. Dr. Carolyn Rowley, Founder and Executive Director, had the opportunity to travel to Kenya to be present for this monumental moment (see pictures on page 2 and 6)

The children were taken out of school in order to witness the installation of the pump. When the last bolt was tightened and from the pump emerged water, there was such delight to be had by all. From our hearts, we thank each and every one of you who gave towards the water project. Truly, you have made a difference in these children’s lives that is immeasurable.

Thank You!
