Embrace Relief has begun a new project called “Fountains of Hope.”
Through our new program, Embrace Relief will be leveraging its knowledge and experience of building water wells throughout Chad and Cameroon to rebuild non-functioning wells in the region. Currently,
- Over 50,000 water supply points across sub-Saharan Africa are not functioning
- Up to 45% of water wells in the region are non-operational
To repair a water well today and give people the chance at a new life, the cost is $1300.
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.
Worldwide, it is estimated that more than 800,000 people die from diarrhea caused by unsafe drinking water. This accounts for 1 in 9 child deaths worldwide.
Children around the world miss 443 million days of school each year due to waterborne illness.
On average, women and girls in developing countries walk approximately 3.5 miles every day, carrying 5 gallons of water to their families. In sub-Saharan Africa alone, women spend about 40 billion hours a year collecting water
