Rays of Hope


I get lucky everytime when i see, that a lot of poeple help with their knowledg other people they are in need.

We are living i a time which is charachtrized with war,terror,finencial crisis,poverty,hunger and much other misery. There are millions of people they have no food,no water,they are fighting everyday for their exsistent. but that is only one side. At the other side we have many organizations and foundations and NGO they are working hard to help people getting food,getting clean and healthy water.

One projet which i found and makes me hope is Rays of Hope powered by The Water School . They are in partnership with Christian Mission Aid(CMA)

They say:"The most effective vaccine against child death in Africa is a glass of clean water."  and "Here are the cold, hard facts according to the above report – "There are roughly two million child deaths every year as a result of not having access to clean water." Africa is hugely over represented in that number. The continent accounts for nearly a third or more, almost 40% of total child deaths from water related problems. " But they found a way to fight against Child death in Africa with their Solar Water Disinfection System or SODIS

Saving the Lives of Malnourished Children


“Saving the Lives of Malnourished Children” is now guaranteed a share of $2.5 million in prize money. The project with the most votes receives $1.5 million, 2nd receives $500,000, 3rd $300,000, and 4th and 5th $100,000. The funding – made possible by your votes – would bring a vital lifeline to hungry and malnourished children around the world.

But we need your help between now and October 13. Voting is easy and doesn’t cost a thing! In just a click, you can save the lives of thousands of malnourished children. Click here to vote:

For severely malnourished children, we offer a step-by-step treatment program that gives them what they need to recover, including nutrient-dense food supplements like the peanut-based product, Plumpy’Nut. Our comprehensive monitoring system saves more than 90 percent of children being treated in our feeding centers. Being one of the Top 5 would mean our nutrition could reach more children around the world who need our help.

CLICK HERE TO VOTE!

Hunger and malnutrition kill more people in the world than HIV, tuberculosis, and malaria combined. As food prices rise, this funding is even more critical. More people are being driven deeper into poverty trying to afford basic staples. Many have nothing to eat at all. Your vote makes it possible for fewer young lives to be lost because they do not have enough to eat.

Getting the word out to your friends and family makes a huge difference! Forward this link to a friend and you bring us that much closer to the $1.5 million to help malnourished children around the world!
