The Navajo and Water

Yá’át’ééh, or hello. Would you like to give a neglected Navajo family life?

After all, water IS life.

Did you know that there’s a group of approximately 50,000 people that don’t have running water, electricity, or an in home toilet? No, these people are not in central Africa, or Asia, but in the richest country in the world, the United States of America.

The Navajo live on the USA’s largest Native American reservation, spread across 17 million acres of desert in the states of Utah, Arizona, and New Mexico. It’s estimated that 30-40% of these Native Americans live without basic necessities like water, today, in the year 2022.

Dignity for Venezuelans

Dignity, a sense of pride in oneself. Self-respect.

Here in Cuenca, 8,400 feet high up in the Ecuadorian Andes, there’s over 20,000 Venezuelan refugees. You can’t miss them, they’re on most street corners, stairwells, and in parks humbly asking for a little help.

Together with our friend Josh Yentin at Loco Living, and with your help, we want to share some dignity with those in need.

In the past few days, we’ve purchased Dignity Kits for Venezuelan refugees living here on the streets. These kits might be more commonly known as hygiene kits, but we feel Dignity has a much better ring to it, don’t you agree?

Being a refugee during a pandemic is not easy, and when food and shelter are hard to find, other necessities like hygiene become secondary.

This is why we’ve assembled Dignity Kits containing essentials like soap, shampoo, deodorant, nail clippers, feminine pads, alcohol spray, toothbrush, toothpaste, and a razor, all in a reusable bag, to be passed out to those that have sacrificed their hygiene for more “important” things.

We’re sure you agree, having the basics to maintain health and preventing disease specifically through cleanliness is essential every day, but especially during a pandemic.

a Ripple general fund

Thank you for considering to contribute to a Ripple’s General Fund. These funds will not be designated to a specific project until needed.  We will use these funds to be prepared for future projects. For example, we like to keep a stock of water filters at all times that can be used in an emergency to respond to a natural or manmade disaster.  We also always have unforeseen expenses while on projects and find more ways we can help than we planned for, for example paying for a patient to see a needed specialist in a far away city, buying very needed medical supplies, etc.  

We are a volunteer based organization.  No one is paid for their work and in fact we pay a lot to do this work. Some of the funds in this account, if there is plenty, may be used to offset the administrative cost of organizing, running, and maintaining this NGO.

We will always be 100% transparent about how we spend our funding. If you would like to contribute to this fund we would greatly appreciate it.  Thank you for your consideration.
