No clean water. No electricity to pump water from the underground wells.
Here at the intersection of a devastated economy and a corrupt government, the precious people of Zimbabwe are starving to death everyday. I don't know the statistical numbers about how many are dying, but I do know that I can't imagine the horror of watching my own children thirst or starve to death. In current conditions, we are finding that caretakers are beginning to take their own lives simply because they cannot deal with watching the children die from starvation.
Our goal at the Wells of Life project is to provide life for those in Zimbabwe through donations, which are carefully distributed on the ground by personal friends of ours. To find out more about our distribution process, click here. We are proud to report that in 2008, Wells of Life has been a part of providing food for over 6500 people for a month! AND one of our first wells in Harare struck fresh water earlier this year!
You may be wondering "What can I do that will make an impact halfway around the world?" Here are some areas where you can help!
--Donate Blog Design skills!--we would like to make our blog more professional looking so that it appears as credible as the people behind it are.
--Donate money to help us provide food and fresh, clean water for the dying!--Just $10 will provide food for one family for an entire month! EVERY CENT of your donation will help someone in Zimbabwe fill their empty and swollen bellies with food and clean water.
Please contact Julie Hamilton at firstname.lastname@example.org or 951.660.3464 to find out more about how to make a tax deductible donation to the Wells of Life project.
It seems impossible, but it is true that YOU can make a difference in the life of a child on the other side of the world who is hungry and thirsty every single day. Imagine the true story of one single widow who is attempting to care for her eight young grandchildren because all of her sons and daughters have died. Then, we come to the house bringing gifts of beans, maize, candles, soap. She's overwhelmed with the previously unattainable hope that the children can eat another meal. With tears of joy, she is inexpressibly grateful for those who have blessed her life in such a way and YOU are a part of it! We can do this together. Please consider partnering with us!
Sincerely, Julie and Damion Hamilton
