Help Bring Safe Drinking Water to Sierra Leone
Veronica Henry (MyAfricanDiaspora.com) is partnering with ZCD Foundation to help bring international focus to the issues affecting post-conflict Sierra Leone.
ZCD Foundation was founded in early 2008, through the pioneering efforts of Zainab Beckett, a Sierra Leonean residing in Las Vegas, with the support of her American and Sierra Leonean counterparts. They share similar aims in bringing hope and dignity to the poor in depressed and disadvantaged rural communities and in improving their standard of living.
ZCD Foundation supports initiatives to bring clean drinking water and latrines to thousands of inhabitants in impoverished Sierra Leone communities. At least every rural household will need a clean and safe source of water and adequate sanitation facilities. ZCD Foundation wants "to halve the proportion of people without sustainable access to safe drinking water and improved sanitation, by 2015."
