Mission: Blood:Water Mission is a grassroots organization that empowers communities to work together against the HIV/AIDS and water crisis in Africa.
Results: In May 2011, we will be celebrating the completion of our 1000 Wells project, which was a project to fund 1000 clean water projects in Africa.
Through this project and our HIV/AIDS project we have provided clean water to more that half a million Africans and funded the construction of three AIDS clinics which have treated 7,000 people and provided testing for more than 25,000 people.
Geographic areas served: Africa
Programs: IWASH - Integreated Water and Sanitation Hygiene Training
HIV/AIDS - Provide holistic treatment for people affected by the HIV/AIDS virus.
This is an amazing organization that brings clean water and HIV/AIDS support to communities around the world. A few years ago, I did a read-a-thon and was able to donate more than $5000 to the organization. The staff that I worked with during my read-a-thon was superb, and reinforced to me that they are doing great work.
