Help a poor developing community in Africa get access to clean water
Did you know there is a Herefordshire based non-profit organisation that is dedicated to providing access to clean drinking water? In some parts of Africa, there are small children walking hours everyday to get water. That’s why Hope Spring was set up to help combat this daily plight.
Hope Spring helps developing communities in Africa access safe, clean water. Lack of clean drinking water and adequate sanitation in developing communities is one of the major killers of children under 5 years of age. In collaboration with the beneficiary community, they dig wells or boreholes.
A message from Temi
“I am running Barcelona Marathon on March the 12th, 2017 to raise money for Hope Spring, a great charity that helps poor communities in Africa access clean drinking water. I could use big impressive statistics to back up the reasons I am raising money for a water charity, but I will not. I will just share a story from one of the past beneficiaries of Hope Spring water project called Amuda.
Amuda is 8 years old. Each morning, she must wake up early, take a plastic container and walk 2 miles to the nearest well. She joins a long queue. When it is eventually her turn, she collect about 10kg of water into her plastic container, carry it on her head, and head back home.”
