Mother’s Day is a time when we celebrate mothers and the life that they give. For mothers in Africa, that gift of life is so fragile it hangs by a thread.
This Mother’s Day, many of us will be giving and receiving flowers in beautiful vases filled with water. To us, this small amount of water is nearly insignificant, used to keep flowers fresh for a while and then poured down the drain without even a thought; for others water is a daily struggle between life and death
For African families, a daily supply of water can be miles away, and for many, these sources of water are dirty and contaminated. The facts don’t lie: 1.1 billion people in the world don’t have access to safe drinking water, roughly one-sixth of the world’s population.
These statistics are devastating, but the truth is you have the ability to change everything. Your simple action has life changing consequences. For a gift of $25 (less than the price of a couple of bags of Starbucks coffee), you can help us build safe, clean, life-giving water and sanitation projects in African Villages and communities, truly helping mothers in sub-Saharan African countries provide life with a sustainable water supply for their families.
This Mother’s Day, give the gift of water to a mother in Africa and receive a mini water garden as our gift to you. Place your mini water garden in your window as a daily reminder of the gift of life that water is.
