We believe in a world where everyone has access to clean and safe drinking water. To mark World Water Day, we are launching a new fund to provide water for families in Zimbabwe.
The newly launched Water Fund aims to bring fresh, clean water to thousands of families in an area of southern Zimbabwe that has been devastated by drought.
We are asking Irish businesses, organisations, or individuals to row in behind our campaign and help deliver precious water to families.
In southern Zimbabwe, people continue to face more frequent and more severe droughts. These droughts further reduce access to water, and lead to hunger, malnutrition and illness.
Rural women are particularly affected as they are responsible for 80% of agriculture production.
Many families in the areas where we work can only produce enough food for seven months of the year. The remaining five months are known as the hungry months.
You can help provide a lifeline to these people. Trócaire works in southern Zimbabwe to increase access to water and reduce hunger.
With you support our goal is to raise €160,000 over the next three years for drought-stricken Matebeland and Masvingo in southern Zimbabwe.
If you or your organisation would like to find out more about The Water Fund and how you can help please contact Sinead Christian ([email protected] or 01 6293333).
