This campaign closed on Dec 31, 2016 Bram Luyten brought clean water to Kibia Allassane.
My birthday makes me feel incredibly blessed for all of the luck and good fortune in my life. Born in a wealthy country, loving family, all opportunities for a great education, a fulfilling job with an awesome set of colleagues and a loving girlfriend.
I'm grateful and realise that most other people on this planet are not this fortunate. The only thing I could wish for on my birthday is that life improves for others. Clean water is key here.
Many of us have no idea what it's like to be thirsty. We have plenty of water to drink -- even the water in our toilets is clean!
But many people around the world don’t have that luxury. Every day, about 1,400 children die from diseases caused by unsafe water and poor sanitation. But it doesn’t have to be that way. There are simple solutions like drilled wells, spring protections and BioSand filters that help provide clean water to communities around the world.
I started this fundraising campaign to help charity: water build these types of projects around the world, and I'm looking for anyone who can help me.
Please donate to my campaign -- anything you can give is a huge help.
100% of the money will be used to build clean water projects, and when they’re complete, charity: water will send us photos and GPS coordinates so we can see the exact community we helped.
All donations made to Bram’s campaign
Diseases from unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war. Your donation will help change that.
100% of the money raised by this campaign is being used to bring clean water to help those in need. In 21 months we’ll be able to show you exactly where the money went and who it helped.
