Today is World Water Day … and it’s water that is on the minds of nearly every person in Zimbabwe.
Last week, Cyclone Idai — a storm many are saying is one of the worst to ever hit the southern hemisphere — drenched Zimbabwe in torrential floodwaters. Some houses were completely swept away in the floods, and many roads were washed out.
But while the country is struggling with the problem of having too much water, it’s also suffering from having too little.
Clean drinking water is almost impossible to find in the most affected areas of Zimbabwe since the floods damaged or contaminated many water tanks and pipelines. Without clean water, many people worry that a deadly outbreak of cholera, typhoid, or another waterborne disease is on the horizon. Countless lives are at stake.
The theme of this year’s World Water Day is “leaving no one behind.” And we need YOUR help to make sure that the people of Zimbabwe are not left behind.
For just $15, you can provide one person in Zimbabwe with clean water. And the best part is your donation DOUBLES thanks to a matching gift. For every dollar you give, another dollar will be given to provide clean water to an additional impoverished community — up to $15,000!
You can help save 2X as many lives.
The survivors of Cyclone Idai have also survived massive flooding and deadly landslides. They shouldn’t have to worry now about dying from drinking a cup of dirty water.
No one should have to live without clean water — especially someone like these families who lost everything. As the official World Water Day website by the U.N. states: “Whoever you are, wherever you are, water is your human right.”
Will you give $15 today to provide this most basic of all human rights to someone suffering in Zimbabwe? Your gift will be matched 100 percent, and the matching amount will help provide clean water to another impoverished community.
So, you make an incredible, lifesaving impact in Zimbabwe and beyond. You can help make sure that no one is left behind in the fight for clean water.
