World Water Day!

Did you know that 4,000 children die from the lack of clean drinking water? Oh that saddens my heart! But by working together we can help! God's work, works the best when we all work hard together!

1/3 of all wells drilled in the last 20 years are now broken. But we can help!

Here is a picture of a broken well in a village. Look at all those beautiful people, they need clean drinking water and the word of God!

Too often there are no tools, spare parts or trained mechanics to fix the broken wells. I am loving this picture of everyone working together to fix a broken well. My heart sings with joy!

Oh this picture is so cute! Look at the beautiful lady dancing with her wrench! She is too cute!
Two years ago a hand pump mechanics business was setup by WaterAid.
Villagers call the shop when a hand pump breaks down and a mechanic bikes over to fix it.

The mechanics also train villagers in hygiene education and well maintenance to prevent disease and future breakdowns.
Water samples are brought to the lab to make sure the water is safe to drink.

They need to hire 25 more mechanics
Invest in the launch of a sanitary pad side business
Buy more equipment
Strengthen the program in Mahoba, and help WaterAid expand into the state of Bihar

Our goal is to raise $10,000 in one day! I believe this can happen because God makes unbelievable things happen. I can witness to that! If we raise this much money it would bring clean drinking water to 300 more people a month!
And that's 3,600 people a year!
I teamed up with 100 other bloggers to help raise awareness for this great cause! So if you feel led to give, any amount, whatever you feel led to give I would be so happy! If we all work together, God will make BIG things happen! He always does!
