Our Campaign to Raise funds to develop Water and Sanitation for the village of Chuko Weyama. It is estimated that 1.1 billion people in the world do not have access to safe, clean water. When our family traveled to Ethiopia to adopt Phelix and Phisher God changed our lives and our hearts forever. With our own eyes we saw the desperate need for life's basic necessities: food, clothing, shelter, loving parents and WATER! We watched as animals drank and stood in the same water the people drank from. Think about the disease in water where animals stand, use the restroom in and walk around in. It is not okay with us that the people in Ethiopia do not have safe, clean water. We were excited to reconnect with the Neal family at Kanakuk Kamp this summer. They shared with us their plan to bring water to the village where one of their adopted sons was born. We are excited to partner with them and humbled that the Lord would allow us to serve Him in this way. All of us at DIG DEEP know we can not accomplish this project ourselves. We are praying and depending on our Lord and Savior for every penny it takes to bring clean water to the rural, southern village of Chuko, Ethiopia. Would you prayerfully consider how you and your family can support DIG DEEP and further HIS kingdom in Ethiopia, Africa? A Glimmer of Hope lifts women and children out of extreme poverty in rural Ethiopia. Using an entrepreneurial model developed by the organization, it provides clean water, schools, health clinics and microfinance loans. 100% of all donations go directly to funding these projects, more than 4,000 to date. Over the last 10 years, A Glimmer of Hope has improved 2.5 million lives. Through photos, video and GPS coordinates, donors personally experience how their contributions, large and small, are changing lives. By supporting our campaign, you can choose to receive email updates throughout the year on the project we complete together and the lives touched by it. A Glimmer of Hope listens to and partners with communities to build and maintain projects, ensuring sustainability. Recently, founders Donna and Philip Berber were ranked #6 globally on Barron's list of The Best 25 Givers, based on effectiveness and impact. We greatly appreciate your support of our campaign. On behalf of those who lives are forever transformed by your generosity, thank you.
