Domestic Water - a daily chore for women and children
Watch it in YouTube: The Faces of Relief
Michael-David Reilly, 10th Anniversary Gala Celebrations
In many African villages, children walk several miles to bring
unsanitary drinking water home for domestic uses. Often they walk an
average of 2-4 miles or more to find water in streams, rivers, erosion
ditches or gullies. These kinds of water sources often incubate all
types of diseases that unleash terrible blows on their health condition
and impact average life expectancy.

Light up a Village
BOGO Light... make a difference -
Buy One to Give One [BOGO] -provide Solar lamps for school
kids to learn at nights in rural homes in Africa.
Share the love of Jesus - the Light of
the World. Reading
with kerosene lamps, firewood, or candles is painful and
unhealthy. Donate these lights to save their young eyes &
Many children who could not attend school due to abject
poverty in their families, are also seen in the streets of
nearby urban centers hawking some wares or food items they
are saddled with each day by either their parents, or the
people they serve in these towns.
Child labor is too rampant in many African towns, including
overburdening children with water fetching tasks several
times a day.
