charity: water September Campaign for Rwanda

This September, charity: water is celebrating its birthday by bringing water to everyone in one country–Rwanda. The Rwandan people overcame the darkest time in their history, and together, rebuilt their nation. Now, they’re working to give clean water to everyone. Help charity: water raise $1.7 million to give clean water to every community in the Shyorongi and Ngoma sectors of Rwanda.

The people of Rwanda are rewriting their story. And it starts with clean water for everyone. Learn more and donate at www.charitywater.org/september/.

Intended Consequences

In 2008 MediaStorm produced Intended Consequences with photojournalist Jonathan Torgovnik on the plight and strength of women who bore children as a result of rape during the 1994 Rwandan Genocide.

In Rwanda, in 1994, Hutu militia committed a bloody genocide, murdering one million Tutsis. Many of the Tutsi women were spared, only to be held captive and repeatedly raped. Many became pregnant. Intended Consequences tells their stories. See the project at http://mediastorm.com/publication/intended-consequences

charity: water launches UNSHAKEN campaign to fund long-term water solutions in Haiti

Today, on World Water Day, charity: water launched UNSHAKEN, a campaign to fund long-term water solutions for areas of greatest need in rural Haiti.

After the earthquake on January 12, over one million people were displaced from Port-au-Prince to the rural areas, where they have minimal or no access to clean, safe water. One-third of the nation lacked access to safe water before the quake; now, the situation is devastating. As the rural communities continue to swell, so does the risk of deadly waterborne diseases. In the coming months, charity: water plans to raise $1.3 million to serve more than 40,000 people in 11 of these areas with clean, safe drinking water. 100% of the funds raised will directly fund water projects on the ground.

You can help: watch the video, visit the UNSHAKEN site, learn more about the issues they’re facing, and help spread the word.
