It has all started in Africa 2016, in little community called Taveta.
Before moving to Canada from Ireland I have set up a goal 'Soonest I find a job I will sponsor a child'. And that's exactly what happened. About 7 years ago I have decided to sponsor little boy Pascal from Kenya, very secluded area outside of Taveta.
Three years after I have planned trip to Africa and as a first ever sponsor also visited Pascal's community. It was a lifechanging but heartbreaking experience.
During the visit of his school and long chat with the principal, everything just clicked and instantly made sense. WATER! It's the main and basic need he said. He explained how lack of water cause so many issues and how would water change the whole system. It was a great eye-opening moment.
Why to support schools, books, chairs... when kids go to classes hungry and sleep throughout the day. We need to look at the bigger picture and long-term solutions.
Water = safe clean drinking water = prevents spread of disease
Water = help local agricultures = sell or exchange = increase of food supply
Water = improve hygiene
It took few years but after long research, so many phone calls and plan changes, I have decided to create this fundraiser to sponsor water well by local Canadian organization Lifewater Canada. It's well trusted and family owned organization that builds wells in Haiti and Africa.
I have chosen water well in Haiti that cost in total $5000 and soonest there will be opportunity to travel to Haiti, I will visit the location and the local community on my own expense.
Thanks so much for your support and changing people's lives💕
