25 Days of Christmas
Haiti's already desperate need was compounded by the 2016 hurricane. Most of Haiti’s water sources became contaminated, leaving the majority of Haitians with little or no access to clean water in any form. Families are regularly battling illness and even death because of contaminated water. Immediate relief can come in the form of water filters. $50 will buy a Sawyer PointOne water filter that will bring immediate relief, purifying 5 gallons of water in an hour. Will you buy one today?
The Philippine islands are beautiful with wonderful people. The setting is deceptive. They are surrounded by water, beautiful ocean, but the mountains are full of villages without access to clean, safe water. We have villages waiting right now! An entire well can bless a village's many families for $3000. Can you be a part of a Christmas miracle?
Individual wells in India transform an entire village. The changes in the health of the children to the elderly are readily apparent. Borewells average $1500 each, and are well maintained and valued by the people. Clear Blue wells are extremely valuable, because they are called friendship wells, and they are highly unusual. In this highly regulated caste society, our wells are available to everyone and anyone. Would you make a Christmas gift and help make clean water available?
Malawi was the very first country where Clear Blue did wells. We drilled more wells there in a couple of years than their government was able to do. They had a special ceremony honoring Clear Blue with members of Parliament. The country is one of the poorest in the world with desperate need for more wells. A well currently costs $8000. Can you help us help them?
Right now another well is being drilled in Rwanda, under the leadership of our friend Ben Muzi. Rwanda is a very poor African nation, with great needs. GDP is $1800 per capita. Borewells costs $7000-8000. Your gift will help us help them meet the basic needs of life.
Did you know that the areas around the resorts in places like Fiji where many people go for cruises stops, honeymoons, etc. are in extreme poverty, just outside the gates? A young couple went to Fiji on their honeymoon and got acquainted with poor villagers next to the resort, and came home fired up to do something. They helped us by spearheading a drive to raise funds for a well, and it was a great blessing to the area. Perhaps you have seen a place in great need, and would be willing to help raise money for it, and start the movement yourself.
Kenya is a beautiful country, with stunning beaches, wildlife parks and reserves. Visitors frequently come to see the beauty and experience the unique cultures of the beautiful people. But there are problems to overcome. Poor Kenyans live in terrible conditions, lacking even the basic of clean, safe water. A borewell there costs around $9000> Clear Blue has changed the lives of the people in numerous villages because caring people gave. Can you help us now?
Paida Munodawafa lived through incredible strife and war in her home country of Zimbabwe. She is a teacher in Akron, Ohio today but has a tremendous concern for her home country and village. Last year we helped her put a well in for a school for elementary children. There are so many needs all around the country. Can you help us do a well? It will take about $7500 to do it. Here she sows us how to carry water. Most Africa women and children walk many, many miles a week to supply the water needed for their families.
