Kenya's Water Crisis

MD-Fall-WFL-MapImg

While our local ministry partner has made a lot of progress in his effort to provide safe water for families in need, many Kenyan households and villages are still struggling to find clean drinking water. The water many must rely on is contaminated, threatening their health and jeopardizing their efforts to escape the snares of poverty. As recent data indicates:

  • About 42% of Kenya’s population lacks sanitary bathroom facilities, resulting in contamination of the water supply.
  • About 28% of the entire country lacks access to safe, reliable water sources.
  • About 37% of rural Kenyans do not have clean water.

During Lent, Catholics around the world pray, fast and give alms for our brothers and sisters in need. Small sacrifices are just one of the ways that we can follow Jesus’ example of giving his life on the cross to accomplish God’s plan of redemption.

Absolutely! Once you select your items, you’ll be given the option of sending an e-card or printing a customizable certificate. These Easter blessings are a fun way to share Christ’s love with others and honor friends and family.

Donations from this campaign will be used to cover any expenditures for the Easter Catalog incurred through June 30, 2024, the close of our ministry’s fiscal year. In the event that more funds are raised than are needed to fully fund the project, the excess funds, will be used to meet the most urgent needs of the ministry.
