Clean Drinking Water

We have a project to help the village of Fievie to get cleaner drinking water for their community.

Currently they get water for drinking, washing and cooking from a pond which is also used by cattle.

The cattle urinate and defacate in the water.

This pond water contains parasites which pass through the skin of children fetching water and can kill them.

Also, the water cant be collected when the cattle are in the pond.

We need to raise money to build a pond just to be used by the community for providing cleaner water. In the longer term we want to create filter systems and water harvesting from the school roof.

If you can make a contribution, please contact . Robin is the international director for Kids Foundation Inc.
