Description

In many parts of the world, the average household does not have water flowing freely from a spigot. Many resort to using river water or stagnant pond water, which can result in life-threatening diseases. CAM supplies funds to dig wells, build cisterns, and provide water filters for people in Kenya, Haiti, Liberia, Cambodia, and the Palestinian territories. We also use funds from this program to set up small irrigation systems in Haiti.
