Give clean water to people like Sidise.
For life.

Join Today

Give monthly. Multiply your impact.

Your recurring monthly donation will bring a lifetime of clean water to people in Dengali, Ethiopia.

Why water, and why Dengali?

Because of people like Sidise. She's 10. As the youngest of three children, Sidise’s job is to help her mother collect water for their family. Some days that means walking 12 or more kilometres with a heavy jerry can on her small back. During the rainy season, the trek is so punishing that Sidise doesn’t have the energy to study — or the time to attend school at all.

Access to clean water will mean Sidise can attend school every day — and pursue her dream of becoming a teacher.

For only $35, you can give Sidise water.
For life. But why stop there?

With Reservoir, you can sign up to give an amount of your choosing each month. A monthly donation of just $8.75 adds up to clean water for three people per year. A monthly donation of $17.50 adds up to clean water for six.

Frequently asked questions

Who is Run for Water?

Run for Water is an Abbotsford-based charity that raises money and awareness for clean water in Ethiopia. To date we have raised over $1.5 million and given access to clean water for over 200,000 people.

Why Ethiopia?

In the last two decades, Ethiopia has been prone to recurring droughts, which bring on food shortages and famines and a spike in water-borne illnesses. Run For Water aims to ease suffering and restore dignity in Ethiopia by providing its people with clean water.

Can I change or cancel my donation?

Yes. You can change or cancel your donation at any time.

Are my monthly donations tax deductible?

Yes. All gifts will be acknowledged, and a receipt for income tax purposes will be mailed to you.

You can always make a one-time donation here. Or join us for our annual race, fundraise for us, or take part in our school program.
