Working in close conjunction with Steve Rutledge and Mike Yap, the founders of Adopt a Village in Laos, a not-for-profit Canadian registered organization (#1755378), I have been volunteering my services in a variety of ways. In this instance, I am helping them spearhead their water filters campaign for 2011-2012. Before the end of this year, they will need to secure 1,000 water filter donations. At the end of 2011, they return to Southeast Asia to continue their humanitarian work with the hill tribes of rural Laos, where they will be distributing and installing these units.
Each filter costs $55.00 Canadian and will service a family of up to 8 people with clean drinking water for many years to come, greatly improving each family’s overall health. You can donate as an individual or a group of friends can pool their resources and contribute one or more units. Whichever way you choose to do this, we need your support so that we can achieve our target.
To help us, please get in touch with Roland Drake (Toronto volunteer) or Steve Rutledge (president of Adopt a Village in Laos). In your email, please include WATER FILTERS CAMPAIGN FOR 2011-2012 in the subject line.
