Clean WaterDespite the fundamental role of water for human health, survival, and development, every one out of nine people do not have access to clean water today. 2.5 billion people do not have access to adequate sanitation, and every minute a child dies from a water-related disease.</b > Donate For Clean Water !

CLEAN WATER: A LUXURY FOR SOME
Clean water is a necessity of life, a basic human right, but 700 million people in 43 countries currently lack it. This includes millions in sub-Saharan Africa who are collecting unsafe water from lakes, rivers, and ponds on a daily basis. Many of them also spend up to six hours a day obtaining this water, forcing them to face danger and extreme weather conditions. Due to Africa’s lack of access to clean water, millions are suffering greatly from poor health and poverty.
- Globally, water scarcity affects more than 700 million people in 43 countries.
- Obtaining water lessens school attendance for young girls. Reducing the time to collect water from 30 to 15 minutes increased girls’ school attendance by 12% in Tanzania.
- 1.8 billion drink contaminated water with feces, putting them at risk of contracting cholera, dysentery, typhoid, and polio.
- In 8 out of 10 households with water unavailable in the home, women and girls are responsible for providing water, lessening their availability to work or go to school.
- By drinking unsafe water, 842,000 people die per year, with 340,000 of those being children under 5.
- Time spent collecting water lessens productivity, costing countries up to 5% of their potential GDP.
- For every $1 invested in water and sanitation, an average of at least $4 is returned through increased productivity in the region.
HOW TO IMPROVE THIS SITUATION
Fortunately, Africa houses a substantial amount of clean water underground, possibly 20 times more than the 8,000 miles of visible water in its lakes and ponds. The water scarcity problem can be solved – but it requires building the infrastructure to get that water to people in a sustainable way.
That’s where Embrace Relief comes in. Since 2020 Embrace Relief has built 500 water wells throughout Chad, Cameroon, and Nigeria. We also plan on building hundreds more throughout the region. Our current wells supply clean water to over 500,000 people on a daily basis, are constantly monitored to ensure peak performance, and are guaranteed to last at least five years.

Opening a water well truly changes and saves lives. Together we can do our part to end the clean water crisis and change the future of a community of people–mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, the elderly, infants, and the infirm. Let’s do our part to save a life today.
Have you ever thought about the children that have to walk miles to get the average water bottle? Me and my friends have, and we have been doing lemonade stands and yard sales, but we all now this will not get us the money we require. So because of this we will need a lot of support.
Fountains Of HopeEmbrace Relief also plans to reconstruct hundreds of non-functioning water wells throughout Chad, Cameroon, and Nigeria</strong > with its Fountains of Hope campaign, and has already successfully started the reconstruction process in Chad and Cameroon. Each reconstructed well receives the same advanced features as ones Embrace Relief fully constructs, so they’re sure to provide clean, sanitary water for hundreds of thousands more people.</strong >
Efficiency: Embrace Relief’s water wells are designed simply and elegantly. This allows us to build more wells for less money than average – which means every dollar you donate goes farther to help those in need in sub-Saharan Africa. Each of our wells cost $3,950, compared to the average asking price of $6,000.
Sustainability: Each well Embrace Relief builds is guaranteed for at least five years after construction. Our team will visit each completed well once a year for a routine maintenance checkup, ensuring that it is still providing the highest standard of clean water. During our five-year warranty, Embrace Relief will also pay for any mechanical repairs needed, at no cost to the local community.
The emergency solution adopted by our organization is installing water wells with hand pumps in regions with little or no access to drinking water. In most of the countries with no permanent fresh surface water, it is possible to provide access to clean water by utilizing underground water resources.To this day, Embrace Relief Foundation has opened over 500 water wells in several countries, providing more than 500,000 people with access to clean water and improving their health and living conditions.
