While we visited this zulu community, one of the babies Lucy (her Zulu name is Ntombi, which means feminine or lady) got so sick from drinking dirty water from the stream that she was in a coma for 5 days and almost lost her life to the bacterial infection and from being so dehydrated. This time when we go to South Africa in October, my daughters will be raising money to purchase water filters on "Go Fund Me" (thanks for the idea John W. Everett) https://www.gofundme.com/clean-water-for-little-lucy
or alternatively you can sponsor one on this website...
The password is cleanwatersaveslives (all lowercase) 100 percent of any donation will go straight to benefit this community. The water filters will be sent straight to South Africa to Bianca Caldwell (The address to ship it to is - 118 Prospect Hall, 51 North Grove, Durban North, Kwa Zulu Natal 4051, South Africa, also for the billing address just leave the country as South Africa, the website doesn't offer USA as an option but it still works- we used it to order the solar power units.) We will personally deliver the water filters to the village in October. Thank you so much for considering saving lives by giving the gift of clean water.
