QUENCHING THIRST: CHASSE CONSULTING: SALES STRATEGIES, INC. DONATES WATER WELLS TO AFRICAN VILLAGE
AUSTIN, TX, July 17, 2010 – In an effort to aid the nearly one billion people who go without clean drinking water every day, Beverly Chasse, President and CEO of Chasse Consulting: Sales Strategies Inc., recently donated three freshwater wells to an Ethiopian village in partnership with the non-profit organization Charity: Water.
Since 2006, Charity: Water has dedicated itself to providing sanitary drinking conditions to villagers living in conflict-ridden nations of the third world. Lack of a clean hydration source and basic sanitation are the root cause of the 80 percent of diseases that kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war. Charity: Water uses 100 percent of its public donations to combat this worldwide water crisis that is responsible for the deaths of 4,500 children daily. Providing safe drinking water is not only critical in preventing these illnesses, but also helps curb rape, abduction and murder rates.
Each of the donated freshwater wells supply 250+ people with a clean water source, and, by constructing these water wells directly in communities, Chasse is helping reduce what is currently a three-hour journey for water to just 15 minutes. Villagers can now stay within the safe vicinity of their homes, preventing incidents of rape and child abductions. The new water source will also allow children more time to attend school and villagers to spend time on economically fruitful projects such as properly irrigating small gardens to secure a food supply. Charity: Water volunteers will also be on hand to educate families on suitable sanitation practices to help control the spread of harmful diseases and thereby improve the overall health of the community. Today, 2,524 water projects have been funded and have afforded 1,130,986 people with clean water in 16 countries.
Interested donors can offer monthly monetary donations and/or sponsor the construction of water wells and latrines. For more information on Charity: Water and ways you can get involved, visit their Web site at www.charitywater.org.
