Day 89: World Hope International (via) Tipping Bucket
I started this mission with the idea that you don’t have to give a lot to make a big difference, built on the motto to give a little everyday. Naturally, I am drawn to like minds and organizations, and the Tipping Bucket is devoted to helping the world using the power of numbers of people with a little bit to give, like a drop in the bucket until it can flow free to those in need. Check out Tipping Bucket and see how as much as $1 can change the world!
We all know that lack of clean water is a huge problem throughout the world. Women spend hours a day fetching water from polluted sources and diseases like dysentery, cholera and typhoid fever spread like wildfire, killing millions of people each year.
The people of Liberia are no stranger to these realities. Struggling to rebuild after years of civil war, this often-overlooked country is now battling water pollution problems. In Liberia alone, hundreds of thousands die each year from water-related illness.
Tipping Bucket’s newest project partner World Hope International is dedicated to bringing clean, potable water to where it’s most needed and they have their sites set on the village of Zinc Camp in Liberia. Zinc Camp is a subsistence farming community of 1,500 people—only growing enough food to sustain their own life. They rely on rain for their crops and they make several trips a day to a distant water source that is polluted and muddy.
But a new well in Zinc Camp means more than just clean water. Read the “plan” tab to see how it impacts the entire community. If you feel moved, do something about it. Go ahead, change the world.
