Help Make A Difference in People’s Lives
DID YOU KNOW?
1 in 10: The number of people in the world who don’t have access to safe water.
1 in 3: The number of people who have no access to a bathroom.
700,000: The number of children that die every year due to lack of clean water.
Almost a billion people in our world are living without access to clean water. As a result, the leading cause of death worldwide is illness due to waterborne disease, lack of sanitation, and poor hygiene practices. In fact, every 15 seconds, a child dies due to water-related causes.
Water is essential to basic living, hygiene, food security, and health. A water well provides essential drinking water and hygiene, prevents sickness, and is the basis for successful farming and food security, especially during times of little rain. A well in a village can help keep women and children from having to walk long distances and carry heavy containers of water every day.
TOO MANY PEOPLE ARE LIVING WITHOUT SAFE WATER.
TOGETHER, WE CAN CHANGE THAT.
The money raised by New Vision from our Holiday Craft Fair will be used to dig and build a well that will provide clean, safe water for an entire community.
Here’s how you can help-
BE A VENDOR – Your booth space rental fee will go towards the well project.
DONATE YOUR CRAFTS – The sale of your craft items will go towards the well project.
DONATE YOUR TIME – Help on one of our create-a-craft workdays in October or help during the hours of the Craft Fair.
SHOP! New Vision’s portion of the proceeds from your purchases will go directly to the well project.
SHARE! Invite your friends by sharing our Facebook event page: Holiday Craft Fair
