Clean water for Zimbabwe

CLEAN WATER NEEDED IN GWERU, ZIMBABWE
 
Many months ago, Gweru’s water supply’s pump stopped working.    Since that time the only water they have access to is the water shown in the picture below, which is drawn by a hand pump.  The people of Gweru must travel a distance to obtain this water by using jugs and barrels to transport it back to their homes.

  The people of Gweru  are dying daily of cholera and typhoid from the impurities in their water.  We have friends in a local church in Gweru that have what is called a “borehole” on their property.  A borehole is basically just a hole in the ground with a pipe in it.

This borehole is in need of a pump, tank, wiring and purification system.  The borehole shown above is located at a local Church.   Our goal is to furnish this church and community with an electric pump and water purification system so they can have clean fresh water on the property outside the church.  Not only will this benefit their need for water, it will show the community how God is working for them.   The funds are needed as soon as possible as many are dying from typhoid and cholera due to their unclean water and only those with money can buy bottled water.  Zimbabwe is one of the poorest countries in the world and it is essential that they have clean water.  Please from the bottom of our hearts we ask for your help in saving the lives of so many people by a contribution, it doesn’t matter if it is $1 or $1,000, every penny will help.  We, here in America do not realize how fortunate we are not only to live in a free country but to have access to such things as clean water, food, transportation and our everyday needs.  Please, Would you be willing to give up something as simple as a night out for dinner or that new blouse or shirt that you really don’t need and donate that money just so someone can have clean water.  They are desperate for clean water, just as we are desperate to help them.  Thank you so much for your love and compassion.  Please continue to keep Zimbabwe and its people in your prayers.

  ALL  CONTRIBUTIONS...100% OF WHAT IS RECEIVED FROM GO FUND ME WILL GO TO THE CHURCH IN GWERU FOR PURCHASING THE ITEMS NEEDED FOR PURIFIED WATER! ANY EXTRA FUNDS WILL GO TO HELP OTHER COMMUNITIES IN ZIMBABWE TO OBTAIN CLEAN WATER.
