From CMMB: Double Your Gift, Double Your Impact

Save a Life with Catholic Medical Mission Board

Unsafe water causes so many preventable diseases. Collins, an eight-year-old from Kenya, had never been in a real bathroom in his entire life.

When Bre, a CMMB volunteer, showed him running water from a faucet for the first time, he was enchanted. And when Bre answered his question, “I can drink it?” with a yes, Collins’ smile was truly something to behold. It’s such a simple thing to be able to turn on a faucet, and have clean, safe drinking water available. It’s something we all take for granted.

But to Collins, clean, running water is a miracle. To CMMB, it’s a step in the right direction toward helping women and children lead healthier lives. As many as 3.5 million people die every year from diseases caused by unsafe water. Diarrhea — which is easily prevented with clean water and basic sanitation — is the second leading cause of death in children under the age of five.

Your support can make a difference. Together, we can provide clean water sources for health facilities in Kenya, build safe latrines and “clean-water corners” in homes in Peru, and train healthcare workers to prevent children from getting water-related diseases in Haiti.

Help CMMB provide clean water to families in need. Your donation will be matched dollar-for-dollar, up to $50,000, through September 30. Take advantage of the special matching opportunity and double your support for women and their families!
