The Mae Pa Kinship Project in Thailand is serving hundreds of children and families living in the nearby trash dump. Where the water is a death trap, full of bacteria and waste.
Yep, you read that right. Trash. Dump. Waste. All things that should not come near your drinking water.
How did these families end up making their homes in a trash dump in western Thailand?
Many of them are refugees who fled ethnic and religious persecution in their home country of Myanmar. They are not recognized by the Thai government, so finding work and settling down is impossible. Yet if they return home, they could be killed.
These hard working families live on next to nothing so that their children can have a chance at a better future, and Mae Pa Kinship Project is helping them get there. They run a school for 335 of these refugee children, giving them the education they need for a bright future, as well as serving meals to help them grow big and strong.
But bad water is getting in the way. The children keep getting sick with everything from digestive upsets to kidney stones! They can’t go to school, learn, or grow if this keeps happening.
The good news is that you can solve their water problem by giving them a heavy duty water filter and storage tanks. The filter and storage tanks will cost around $8,000.
A gift of any amount will help, and 100% of your gift will go towards giving the Mae Pa Kinship Kids clean water. Donate online now!
