Faces Helped By Charity:Water

I was just in the Tigray region of Northern Ethiopia with Charity:Water building wells to provide clean drinking water to the poor in remote villages. The conditions are dire and the relief provided by these wells was so immediate and gratifying to see. Kids will no longer be at risk for dysentery, and women will no longer need to walk for hours to fetch water from dirty sources miles away. This means that not only will the entire community be healthier, but everyone can now attend school. A mere $20 provides clean drinking water for one person for 20 years. I would be honored if you donated and helped these folks out:
