For just $50, help women and children get safe access to clean water to improve their quality of life and provide them with equal opportunities


SPONSOR A BUCKET OF WATER FOR JUST $50 TO PROVIDE CLEAN WATER FOR A FAMILY FOR A YEAR 

Somaliland is currently going through one of the worst droughts ever, with both children and livestock dying from a lack of clean water. We need to act NOW to help our brothers and sisters. In collaboration with registered charity Mercy-USA for Aid and Development, MOTW registered charity is on the ground to help raise awareness and support for Mercy-USA’s efforts to provide clean water to families in need. And they need YOUR help.

Safe access to clean water shouldn’t be a luxury, but for millions in Somaliland, it is. Save lives by helping get safe access to clean water. Your support will help communities prosper and improve the quality of life for women and children.

Somaliland Needs Your Help!

Climate change has increased the severity of droughts and floods plaguing this once fertile land. Pollution created by others far away has wreaked havoc on the traditional pastoral lifestyle of the Somali people. The lack of safe access to clean water negatively impacts the community as a whole, but especially women and girls, as the chore of fetching water falls on them in this traditional society.

When a family lacks clean water: 

  • Children get sick and die from contaminated water or have stunted growth and other complications from malnutrition.
  • Girls end up spending half the day to fetch water and miss out on school.
  • Families are forced to pay for water from their meager income meant for food.

Donate Now To Save Lives!

Your gift of a well to a deserving community in Somalia will save lives.

Mercy-USA believes that by helping rural and urban communities with the basic of life­—clean water, we can make positive contributions to the entire country’s steps toward stability and a resurgence of prosperity. Well construction, conducted by Mercy-USA with funds provided by private donations, has changed the lives of tens of thousands in Somalia. A nearby well gives time and safety to women and gives their daughters the same opportunity existing for education that their sons enjoy.
