￼￼￼Many of you remember Lucy Yeboah, a young ambitious Ghanaian woman who raised thousands of dollars to volunteer in a water treatment program in Tamale, Ghana with the non profit organization Saha Global.
Miss. Yeboah desires to continue serving Ghana's impoverished population, through serving as Miss Ghana USA 2017. Beginning in December 2017, Miss. Yeboah will have the opportunity to implement her platform named "WaterMyLife Initiative", which aims to raise awareness on the importance of consuming purified water and water-borne diseases due to cholera e-coli contamination. The WaterMyLife Initiative will provide education and simple resources for communities in Ghana not only suffering from consuming contaminated water but poverty in general. Simple resources include clothing, hygiene products, non-perishable foods, school supplies, shoes, and anything else that can improve overall quality of life.
Lucy Yeboah is primarily focused on educating more Ghanaians on how the quality of a person’s health and life-expectancy can vary based on the type of water he or she consumes. Would you believe that nearly 40 percent of Ghana’s 25 million population are denied the right to access safe drinking water? (Safe Water Network) This clearly reveals a violation to a basic human right because life depends and thrives on clean water. However, the WaterMyLife Initiative seeks to serve and meet various needs in Ghana.
The core mission is to highlight and meet the needs of Ghana's neglected communities.
"Your support will allow the WaterMyLife Initiative to provide ongoing resources and services.
Whoever is able to give, will certainly reap an abundant return. Remember, you are investing in me: a young woman, who simply desires to use her God-given gifts and talents to assist those who have been generationally and historically neglected.
Let us invest in the quality of living for Ghana's impoverished population.
If we want to alleviate global poverty, we should tackle this issue one location at a time.
'One person gives freely, yet gains even more; another withholds unduly, but comes to poverty. A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed.' Proverbs 11:24-25
Thank you in advance!"
