Happy weekend, everyone. I wanted to share my friend Terry’s wonderful safe water initiative with you. Thanks for reading!
A few weeks ago, you read about my incredible trip to Tanzania. Besides the amazing up-close interactions with wildlife, and the expansive, gorgeous views of the East African landscape, I told you about our visit to Safe Water Ceramics of East Africa (SWCEA) where they are working to bring clean drinking water to the local population.
In Tanzania, the fourth most populated country in sub-Saharan Africa, half the people (27 million) don’t have access to safe water. In many cases, women and children collect water where animals drink, urinate and defecate.
Only 34% have access to decent sanitation, something we take for granted.
Boiling, which uses expensive fuel, can increase fluoride to potentially harmful levels, and most Tanzanian families use no water treatment method at all.
But there is a solution and you can help. SWCEA has developed an easy, inexpensive water filtration method and The Cook’s Tour has partnered with them and Safe Water Now (certified non-profit) to raise awareness.
I’m asking you to join me in helping to combat this problem.
Please consider donating to this effort because everyone deserves clean drinking water. Any amount is appreciated. And if you can’t donate, please share this blog post and/or the link below to our GoFundMe page.
