WaterAfrica President Gary Mittelstaedt and Treasurer Kevin Cummings delivered a $160,000 check to Alan Shiffer, World Vision this month. We have never raised this much money in such a short time before and we are grateful for the generous support of our WaterAfrica community! This check represents donations generated by our Clean Water For Life event, donations from the first part of our 2015 End of the Year Campaign, and contributions from our local matching donors. This total will multiply further through an additional World Vision match.
This is an exciting time to join with us in raising awareness and funds for clean water in Zambia:
- In September, World Vision announced a bold new commitment to work with their partners to provide clean water to everyone, everywhere World Vision works by 2030.
- In October, WaterAfrica announced our ambitious fundraising goal to raise $1.5 million to provide water to 30,000 villagers and help World Vision complete their work in Zambia by 2020.
- In October we also announced our unprecedented 3:1 donation match to multipy your gifts!
Raising Awareness, Raising Funds, Transforming Lives. Thank you for joining us in this life-changing work. We are on pace to see the end of the African water crisis in our lifetime: Clean Water For All!
