2016 Special Project
Supporting Access to Clean Water
The “Special Giving Project” at the Peach Cobbler Relief Sale will be clean water. Around the world, one in 10 people don’t have access to clean, safe water. Women and girls spend hours every day walking to collect water to drink or use for cooking and washing. And farmers lose crops when they can’t access water for irrigation. MCC works with local partners to make sure people have access to clean water closer to their homes, both today and in the future. This includes projects such as: constructing systems for collecting rainwater, digging wells and building dams for drinking or irrigation, training people to construct and maintain water pumps, and teaching sanitation and hygiene practices.
You can help: Make your contribution during the Special Projection segment of the 2016 Peach Cobbler Mennonite Auction for World Relief – Saturday, September 17 at approximately 11:30 am.
In 2016 we raised $24,170 supporting access to clean water. Thanks for your support!
