Matching grant moves non-profit closer to giving all residents of Liberia’s Grand Gedeh County disease-free water.
Sulphur Springs, Texas (PRWEB) December 22, 2016
Access today announced that its partner The Last Well (TLW) is running a fundraising campaign to give the gift of clean water to the 125,000 residents of Grand Gedeh County in Liberia. Thanks to a generous grant, every dollar donated before January 1, 2017 will be matched, effectively doubling the contribution of each donor.
Of the 125,000 people in the desperately poor Grand Gedeh County, more than half of children. They face the harsh daily reality of walking miles to collect water, only to find that it is dirty. Contamination leads to many cases of cholera and other water-borne diseases, which kids and the elderly are particularly susceptible to. As a result, thousands of people die each year.
TLW’s mission is to bring clean drinking water and the Gospel to all of Liberia by the end of the decade. This would make it the first border-to-border initiative in history. To date, TLW has reached over 1.1 million Liberians through more than 1,800 water projects. The Grand Gedeh campaign could go a long way to helping TLW reach its ultimate goal, but only if more people give generously.
“So far we’ve raised $26,676, thanks to the kind giving of our supporters and the matching grant,” said TLW founder and director Dr. Todd Phillips. “If another 250 people gave $500, we’d hit our target and provide clean water to 125,000 people.”
