Dear Adopt-a-Village Friends,
As Guatemala reels under its third year of drought, with over a million people receiving foreign aid in emergency food as their crops fail, MayaChia has presented Adopt-a-Village with an offer of matching funds of $1,500 to provide water storage tanks for our school gardens. To date, 40% of the needed funds have been received, but time is running out on this generous offer!
Despite all our water conservation efforts, including the use of “gray water,” this year’s drought has created real problems for our school gardens—critical in providing food for students and staff and in growing seedlings for the Mayan villages that we serve. Guatemala is one of the 10 countries most vulnerable to climate change in the world; to combat the expected recurrent droughts, Adopt-a-Village is taking preventative measures with water harvesting and training in water conservation methods. Having sufficient water storage is a critical part of this plan.
Not much time is left to receive this very special offer. We don’t want to lose this opportunity! Your gift, small or large, will be doubled, and will help to bring six 2,500-liter water storage tanks to our educational center. Will you help? A check may be sent to:
870 Roguelea Lane
Grants Pass, OR 97526
or www.adoptavillage.com/give-now (General Fund, use message line in PayPal indicating “water tanks.”)
Our sincere thanks!
