Clean Water Sanitation Fundraiser 

HI friends! I've started a fundraiser through FACE Africa to bring clean water sanitation to vulnerable communities in Africa. Access to clean water and sanitation not only improves quality of life, but also brings tangible health and economic benefits and contributes to poverty reduction. 

663 million people globally lack access to safe water supply sources with 350 million people in Africa alone affected everyday. The health implications are staggering. 2 million people die every year due to water-borne diarrheal diseases, most of them children under the age of 5. 

Water scarcity in Africa prevents many young children, especially girls, from attending school and receiving an education as they are expected to aid their mothers in water retrieval and household chores. 

Now imagine fighting this circumstances with the added complication of COVID-19. Help me make a difference. If you can't donate, consider sharing this post to spread the word! Thank you!
