Passing it on…
Thank you for helping me, to help them
Every couple of months I take a percentage of my income from readings and pass it on to others in deprived areas of the world so they are able to improve their lives in some way.
Your reading and contribution has helped others, thank you!
The 3 charities below are very close to my heart, I support these regulary:
Lendwithcare is a revolutionary way to help some of the world’s poorest people work their way out of poverty with dignity. Lendwithcare allows you to lend as little as £15 to fund a small business and once your money is repaid you can choose to recycle your loan to support another poor entrepreneur, or withdraw your money. Lendwithcare is currently working in ten countries. Lendwithcare is an initiative of poverty fighting charity, CARE International UK.
After visiting Cambodia with my family, I was disturbed to see the poverty and deprivation that a lot of people had to live with on a daily basis. As the charity below states:
“Clean water, a human right not a luxury”
In Cambodia, 1 in 7 children die before the age of five from preventable diseases such as typhoid, malnutrition, malaria, dengue fever and diarrhoea. Dirty water is the common denominator for all of these conditions, and the direct cause of many.
Moreover, when adults fall victim to such illnesses and are unable to work, it is not long before entire families go without food, and the cost of medicines and treatment can leave a family struggling with debt for years.
Water for Cambodia,
builds and installs biased water filters, household units that produce clean drinking water directly from contaminated sources. With 15,000 filters in place we have brought clean water to more than 90,000 people. In addition to installing water filters, literacy classes and libraries are offered to young village women providing basic reading, writing and math skills. As the primary caregiver they also receive instruction in health, hygiene and the proper use and maintenance of water filters. A water testing lab monitors filter performance. This holistic approach is helping to break the cycle of disease and poverty.
You can make a difference with a donation or by purchasing a filter for a family or village. A filter costs $60 (just £44)
The smallest contribution can make a tremendous difference in the lives of a whole generation of children.
Water before and after
filtration by biosand filter
As well as providing biodsand filters, you can also help to install a well.
ANGKOR WELL PROJECT has worked to increase rural access to safe water in Siem Reap Angkor, Cambodia since 2005. During this time Angkor Well Project has installed more than 400 pump wells in the different villages, providing safe drinking water to over 6500 rural Cambodians.
HELPING THE POOR FAMILIES
The underlying goal of Angkor Well Project’s development work in Siem Reap Angkor Cambodia is to transform the lives of poor Cambodians by creating sustainable communities where they have access to safe water.
HOW YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
A pump well price ranges from USD 350.00 dollars to 2000.00dollars in accordance with the distance, quality and size of the well. The average cost is USD 350.00 dollars per pump well. Any amount you can contribute toward the project will be greatly appreciated
Once your donation is received, the well will be completed in 20-30 days. Photos of your plaque and well will be sent to you with names of the well beneficiaries.
In order to achieve this objective, Angkor Well Project will continue to work with community to provide clean drinking water.
