Clean Water Project - Water is Life

People in the refugee camps and underdeveloped rural communities need access to clean water sources. Women and children make their daily walk to fetch polluted water in containers weighing up to 40 pounds.

Time spent walking and resulting diseases keep them from school, work and taking care of their families. While some may boil the water, many thirsty and unknowing children and adults simply drink water directly from open swamps, which can result in diseases such as typhoid, cholera and worm parasites.

The good news is that we are changing all this by providing wells. The wells we are constructing are located in the villages where water is most needed. The wells that our engineer constructs are the India Mark 11 Hand-Pumps.

Based on current exchange rates, Think Humanity can construct most wells for $3,000. Think Humanity works alongside community leaders to educate and maintain their wells. (When wells are constructed three or more at a time, we can get a better price.)

If you would like to donate towards a well in honor/memory of a loved one, we will provide a plaque stating whatever you would like to say. See a sample plaque in the photo gallery.

"I don't know how often they do worm the children, but there are worms. They must be there, because they are sharing with animals. People are sharing with pigs and other things. This is one of the root causes of many diseases. So if you provide a solution here, you have provided a solution to very many problems." -Emmanuel Nsabimana
