A Water Well In Ethiopia

Ethiopia Case Study

With drought and politics being a constant struggle for the people of Ethiopia, this is a country on the brink. Only 42% of the country’s 102 million people have access to clean, unpolluted water.

Many people living outside of the main cities in rural areas are forced to collect water from sources riddled with waste and disease.

With not enough water to bathe and clean, disease and poor health is a part of everyday life.

And with many children forced to skip school to collect water every day from miles away, the future looks bleak for this landlocked nation.

All around the world, a child dies from drinking dirty water like the water in the villages in Ethiopia every 20 seconds. That’s 4,000 children every day who deaths could have been prevented with access to clean water.

You can help save lives by building a well.

For millions of people in developing countries getting water is not as simple as turning on the tap. They have to walk for miles to reach the nearest water source. And when they get there the water is dirty and diseased. They drink it knowing it could kill them, but there is simply no other choice.

Help build a Thirst Relief well and you can give families reliable access to safe, clean water. This allows them to drink, wash, make wudu, grow crops and water their animals safely. It will mean they don’t have to spend hours fetching water each day, freeing up time to go to school, work or look after their families. It will mean children will be able to play and learn and do all the things that a healthy young mind should, rather than the bleak prospects they ultimately face right now.

Clean water means healthier lives, improved livelihoods and, ultimately, a route out of poverty and on the road to a better, brighter future.
