Donors Amber & Joel and United Technologies make the lifesaving gift of water a reality for more than 300 school children and faculty in rural Kenya.
This very water, needed for life, can be the culprit which threatens a child’s existence. It is frequently riddled with bacteria which causes diseases such as typhoid, malaria and brucellosis. Without treatment, each of these diseases can cause death.
Much thanks to Amber, Joel and United Technologies for donating enough funding to provide one 10,000 liter rainwater tank for Irura Primary school, located in rural Kenya. This gift can potentially save many lives and most certainly will enhance the lives of every child who attends Irura Primary school.
Prior to the birth of the Matanya’s Hope Rainwater Storage Tank Program, children attending Irura and other day schools were often in states of lethargy. “It was as if I was looking at children who were not present in their own minds”, says Stark, Matanya’s Hope Founder,”but once we delivered the tanks, the children started coming back to life!”
