Almost a billion people on the planet don’t have access to clean drinking water. Unsafe water and a lack of basic sanitation cause 80% of all diseases and kill more people than all forms of violence, including war.

We’re going to raise $50,000 and build wells in 10 villages

    Andy, it’s a pleasure to assist with this project. In 1996, I had the opportunity to visit Haiti and work with an agency that, among other things, dug wells. In so doing, they provided clean water to villages that, up to that time, had to draw water from streams.

    I was privileged to drink from those wells, eat the same meager fare that the villagers ate, and for a brief, blessed time in my life was able to walk in their shoes. Those few days changed my life. So, again, happy to help. Thank you for acknowledging the effort. I hope it leads to others getting involved.
