Swim for Africa

Would you join me in making a difference? I will be part of relay team swimming across the Catalina Channel to raise money to benefit Water Wells For Africa (WWFA). All donations large or small will help make a hugh impact in the lives of thousands especially children who are the most vulnerable to water-borne illness–the leading cause of death.

8,000 children will died today from contaminated water sources. Together we can make a difference today. 

Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to me.  

The Catalina swim has been a lifelong dream and is now becoming a reality with a renewed vision to bring the first clean sustainable water to remote African villages. Not only do these deep-well bore-holes save thousands of lives, but also allows girls to attend school, water for hygiene, and village crops.  Clean water is the first step out of water poverty.    

 WWFA supports rural African communities by providing sustainable water sources, hygiene education, and generally reducing health risks associated with contaminated water. Since 1996 more than 300,000 have received—and continue to benefit from—fresh, clean, water because of WWFA and our dedicated supporters.38684676_1555949188602505_r.jpeg
