As soon as we finish a fundraising campaign, A Glimmer of Hope gives us the details of another community with an urgent need for clean water. They give us a name, a location and a budget, and our work to find the means to make it happen begins.
Right now we are helping a community in Tigray, in the north east part of Ethiopia. It's an area we've visited many times and at times it's been so dry that the people, animals, trees - everything, is covered by grey dust from the dry and rocky earth that covers the ground.
The women here spend many hours every day hunched over small streams, waiting their turn to scoop up dirty water into a can so they can carry it home for their families to drink. Cows and goats walk around in that same water because they depend on the same water source to survive.
This is our 25th project with A Glimmer of Hope and we can't think of a better place to focus our attention. We hope you will help with a donation to give this community access to their very first source of clean water.
