Our Holiday Theme for 2014 is:
As an outpouring of that theme, Shepherd of the Lakes is looking to raise community awareness about the clean water crisis around the world. We are specifically raising funds to sponsor a deep water well for the village of Nabigingo, Uganda, Africa. Won’t you join us?
The children in the picture above are just a few of the 5,766 children that live in Nabigingo. The water in the picture is their only source of water, and even that is only available seasonally. Women and children walk 3.1 miles to fetch this polluted water. Around the world, a child dies every 15 seconds because of a lack of clean water…that’s a total of 4 million children EVERY YEAR. The cost of a clean water well is $10,150.00
Would you and your family consider drinking only water this month? Donate the money you would have spent on soda, tea, coffee, etc. so that these children can have clean water to drink!
Make checks payable to Shepherd of the Lakes and note ‘well’ in the memo. Mail to 153 County Road QQ, Waupaca WI 54981.
