In support of World Water Day on March 22, Eden Springs has pledged to make a donation for every bottled water cooler installed in March to help its charity partner, People Help People-One World, to fund the construction of clean water wells in the Wakiso district of Uganda.
Through contributions each year to the People Help People-One World non-profit organisation, Eden Springs is committed to helping communities in central Africa. Presently, 70% of the Wakiso area’s 1.4m inhabitants don’t have a source of clean water. Approximately 17% of children aged under five in this area die from diarrhoea, while 12% of children aged 10-17 suffer from dysentery. Lack of access to a clean water source affects not only the health of the community but also its future development.
Bernd Wingerberg, director at People Help People-One World, said: “Our mission is to sustainably improve the living conditions of people in developing countries such as Uganda. It’s a matter of our heart to step change the situation and access to clean water is a starting point for this. We are pleased to partner with Eden Springs on this common mission. Their initiative mirrors our vision and hopefully Eden’s Every Drop Counts programme and World Water Day activity will enable us to step change the quality of life in the Wakiso district.”
“Eden is proud to be supporting People Help People-One World and World Water Day with this new month-long initiative,” said Eden Springs CEO Raanan Zilberman. “This year’s World Water Day brings light to water’s role in sustainable and community development. We feel a corporate social responsibility to help support those in need. By making an additional donation for each bottled water cooler installed in March to People Help People-One World, we are sure that we are helping to improve access to fresh drinking water sources in Uganda.”
