The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Out of the 6.7 billion people on earth, 2.4 billion lack access to basic sanitation and 663 million lack access to clean water. Every 20 seconds a child dies of a waterborne illness and 443 million school days are lost each year from water related illnesses. You can help fight the water crisis in Nepal!
Since the April 2015 earthquake that rocked Nepal and devastated the countryside, Wine To Water has established operations in Nepal and has provided water to tens of thousands of people there. With all that has been accomplished, the work is far from over. Wine To Water is excited to invite you to join us in Nepal and make a significant difference in the lives of many. In addition, you will have the rare opportunity to learn about development in country post such a significant event. This is an experience you will never forget and one that you will truly grow from. We hope you will serve with us and make a difference for those in need.
