Message from the Executive Director
This year has been one of major transition and change, but also a year of blessing.
We’ve relocated to Vancouver and begun to grow our network in the Lower Mainland, as well as keeping up our relationship with the community in Comox Valley. We’ve had two fantastic Water Bash events that together have raised over $30,000. We’re connecting with a more multi-generational audience, a fact that has made 2014/15 our best year ever in terms of donation revenue.
These are all signs of hope for stability and growth as we seek to help more Ugandans gain access to clean water.
However, with the Canadian political decision to drop Uganda as an eligible beneficiary, it seems that there will be no DFATD funding left for any Canadian NGO working in Uganda.
We have one year to find $500,000 annually in new funding, so that we can bring clean water to 15,000 Ugandans in 2016.
One year is a short time to reach this goal, but we trust that the right hearts will be moved so that our mission can continue.
As we work toward this goal with confident hope, there are three ways you can help:
- Become a Source Supporter and donate monthly.
- Introduce us to potential major gift donors in your network.
- Consider a special donation, over and above your regular giving, to our Water Fund.
I cannot thank each of you enough for your support. Your generosity, prayers, advice, and encouragement are all part of the amazing story of a thousand Canadians making freedom possible for hundreds of thousands of Ugandans.
