Water 2006 - $20,000 raised
In July, 2006 St. John Vianney Church sent 8 people to Ghana. All of them were visiting Africa for the first time. They funded a mechanized borehole in Savelugu, Northern Region, Ghana. This water source was dedicated on July 20, ‘06. Thousands of people in the village are affected by the provision of clean, accessible water. Positive results were seen almost immediately with a 93% reduction of Guinea Worm cases in the town one year later.
The group also raised an additional $15,000 for Childcare Foundation, an NGO in Accra which places child laborers in school.
This collaboration in Seattle is dedicated to donating money for the causes they will pursue in the years to come. Certainly they are expected to stay in the water area, and WATER is proud to be associated with this outstanding group of everyday people who are taking their ability to make a difference in this world very seriously. You can help now and be part of this outstanding group.
