World Water Day - Please help with this Appeal

Dear Rotarian,

With five weeks to go to United Nations World Water Day, we would like to send a gentle reminder about our WaterAid World Water Day appeal and ask you for your help.

The Iramba project in Tanzania that Rotary clubs have been funding through WaterAid is in its final stages. Working together, we have come so far with this project and have provided thousands of people with a lasting supply of safe water, sanitation and hygiene education. However, we still have a lot of work to do. In order for us to reach everyone who needs our help in this region, we need to we urgently need to drill 6 new boreholes and rehabilitate 8 shallow dug wells. We are looking for a final push in funding between now and World Water Day, 22nd March 2012, to finalize this work. We are asking all Rotary International clubs across Great Britain and Ireland to donate £250 each (or whatever you can) to help us complete this vital work. Please click here for more information on this work and a breakdown of the costs. Want to raise funds- turn wine into water?Why not raise funds for the Iramba project at a fun, wine-related evening? You could host a cheese and wine night, a wine tasting evening or a wine into water quiz - there are plenty of options! It's really easy to do and our free resources are designed to help you host an exciting, sociable club event. Simply fill out the form online to request your free resources or you can email rotary@wateraid.org or call 020 7793 4595.
