Welcome to the Ethiopia Friends campaign to build a well in Ethiopia. This campaign began in June of 2011, at the missionary reunion in Minneapolis. Your donation will help us reach the goal of having our own well through Water To Thrive.
About 500,000 Ethiopian children die before the age of 5. One out of every 10 children never has a first birthday. Water-related disease is the single biggest killer of infants and the principal cause of illness in adults in Ethiopia. Only 12% of the rural population of Ethiopia has access to safe drinking water and 7% to basic sanitation. The water crisis also stagnates the overall development of the country. Women and girls spend hours every day collecting water from distant sources, and in addition are expected to cook, collect firewood, tend fields and care for the sick. Girls could be attending school. Water To Thrive has already provided about 265 wells in Ethiopia since its beginning, just four years ago. Ethiopia Friends can have their own well in Ethiopia for just $5,000. Let’s make some difference in our friends’ lives.
