Water Project

On the most recent mission to Jordan, we found two camps that were not receiving any help from any of the aid organizations. They needed a fresh water supply as they had none, just what water they could carry in themselves by buckets or bottles. With Ramadan coming and the heat of the summer, the people are at an increased risk of dehydration.

SCM is raising money to provide clean drinking water and food for Ramadan to approximately 1000 families in these two camps and neighboring areas. We have already purchased 10 water tanks and have contracted with a reputable water company to fill the tanks weekly, but we need to get them more.

Here is a list of what we are planning to purchase and the costs:

  • $150.00 USD will buy a 2.25 cubic meter water tank with the faucet, stand and installation – we have 10 but need 15 more for a total of 25 tanks  – total to be spent: $3750
  • $800.00 USD will provide weekly water delivery service for the two camps per month – we will be applying to get water vouchers from the Jordanian government for the camps but this will take time, so we are planning on 3 months’ worth of water service – total to be spent: $2400

Any contribution will help provide clean drinking water to these 2 camps that are in dire need. Thank you for your help and compassion.
