Finding water without fail
In the wake of crisis, access to clean water can mean the difference between life and death. In places such as Ethiopia, the IRC uses satellite-aided global positioning system (GPS) devices to pinpoint the best place to dig a well. A GPS device can help a recovering community ensure that homes, schools and medical centers are rebuilt near clean water sources—and free women and children from the burden of walking great distances to fetch water.
Give a Rescue Gift now and your gift to the IRC will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $1 million by generous friends of the IRC. Through Dec. 31, 2013.
