Our church mission partner, Villages in Partnership (VIP) is hosting its annual Water Walk fundraiser on Saturday, May 13. I am writing to invite you to join our Nassau Church Water Walkers team to make a life-changing and life-saving difference in the impoverished villages of Malawi.
Tropical Cyclone Freddy and a recent cholera outbreak have made access to clean water even more critical for the people of Malawi. The lack of clean water and sanitation facilities is a leading cause of cholera outbreaks and other waterborne diseases. Additionally, access to water allows girls to stay in school longer, which opens huge opportunities for their futures.
This year the VIP Water Walk will be a hybrid event: we can gather in-person or online on May 13th and reach out across the country and the world to ask people to participate – last year there were 31 Water Walk teams from as far as AZ, CO, CT, TX, IL, VA, PA, and even a team in Malawi!
Joining the Nassau Church Water Walkers team means:
- Reaching out to your network of friends, family, coworkers, and neighbors with the opportunity to bring clean water, sanitation facilities, and healthcare to the most remote villages by making a donation. We have an online fundraising platform that makes it easy for others to give.
- Joining the Water Walk event happening on May 13th, either in Allentown NJ or online.
- If you’re able, logging miles of Mindful Walks in a friendly competition between us and the other teams during the weeks leading up to the main event.
