Give the Gift of Clean Water!
CIPHI (Ontario Branch) has entered into a fundraising project with Plan Canada. Founded in 1937 as Foster Parents Plan, Plan Canada is one of the world's oldest and largest international development agencies, working in partnership with millions of people around the world to end global poverty. Not for profit, independent and inclusive of all faiths and cultures, Plan Canada has only one agenda: to improve the lives of children.
The Ontario Branch Executive has committed to raising $10,000 to be used for the construction of a well for a school in Sierra Leone. This money will cover construction, installation of a hand-pump, a geo-physical survey, water quality testing and treatment, and the provision of a maintenance toolkit. This is an exciting opportunity for us, and certainly falls within our environmental health mandate to protect the health of people.
This project is part of a larger partnership in co-operation with Dubai Cares, a philanthropic organisation that will match our contribution dollars almost 3 to 1! A dedicated webpage has been set up to donate to this worthwhile and important project. Please help us provide clean drinking water and a safe educational environment for children in Sierra Leone. Every dollar we raise will be money well spent.
