Life-Giving Bottles Harvest Appeal 2017
Harvest clean water. Harvest hope.
The worst drought in 35 years hit southern Africa last year. As water became scarce, families struggled to find enough to drink. Crops withered, cattle died and food stores emptied. Around half a million people were left malnourished and hungry.
Communities in southern Zambia were some of the worst affected. As weather around the world becomes more unpredictable, here it causes longer droughts and more intense flooding. Climate change is water change, and the effects are devastating.
But your congregation can help deliver clean water for people to drink and grow crops with – making a long term change for good.
At WaterAid, we have more than 35 years of experience bringing long-term water solutions to communities like Orine’s.
Technologies like boreholes ensure people have sustainable sources of clean water, even during droughts.
Please join our Harvest Appeal and help us dig and drill even more – simply inspire your congregation to transform ordinary bottles into life-giving coin collectors.
We’ve created some extra resources to accompany your free Harvest resource pack. Download these today and ask your congregation to become life-changers.
