Help to dig a water distribution trench in Africa?

How you can help to dig a water distribution trench in Africa?

You might ask, 'How can I possibly help dig a trench a continent away?' What's this trench for anyway? The simple answer is you really can help by donating to the project to pay the community members to dig the trench.

What's the trench for? Well, the trench is to extend the water distribution system in the Bergnek community, taking them off the critical list and getting them to the WHO minimum recommended amount of 50 litres per person per day.

So will it be 'BLUE' or 'GREEN'? Make a donation today!

What does the project look like?

Pick a trench on the town map! You'll see the 'BLUE' or ‘GREEN' lines on the map we've included in this update of the trenches that need to be dug out for the new water distribution lines that we hope to start in September of this year, and then to complete this part of the project in October and November with the tremendous help and support of Engineers Without Borders, Houston Chapter

You may know, from our previous reports, that a lot of work has been done by the members of the Bergnek Community and its supporters to get us to this point. Now we are in the critical stages of the 1st phase of the 'One Brick at a Time' project. Without solving the core need for water, we can't go on to address sanitation, house building and an healthcare clinic,

There’s work to do and YOUR Contributions and DONATIONS MAKE the DIFFERENCE

You can support the My Arms Wide Open, ‘One Brick at a Time’ project and make a meaningful difference in the lives of the children and families we serve, by making a donation now or setting up a monthly recurring donation as well as sharing this report with your family and friends.

Please Donate Now!

We are grateful for your support. The women, men, girls and children of the My Arms Wide Open communities extend a warm smile and echo our gratitude for your support.
