Our third Charity:Water completion report arrived! Thanks to your support, we were able to fund a school water and sanitation project serving 198 people at the Adishimhafti School in Ethiopia, Africa.
This project provided a waterpoint and latrine block to the Adishimhafti School. Above is a map showing the GPS coordinates of the project pictured (14.39858, 38.85521).
You can find our previous two completion reports below, or check them out on our interactive map:
More than 50 million Ethiopians don't have access to safe water. Most rural families survive on less than five liters of water per day and walk up to four hours to collect it from open sources. 62% of Ethiopians lack clean water, and 88% lack sanitation. Projects like these make a real difference in people's lives, and I'm so happy to be able to be a part of it with you.
