Letisha was passionate about bringing clean water to communities across Ethiopia
Letisha ran with us for the past five years and participated in our school program.
The Reimer family in partnership with Run for Water would like to honour her memory
by building clean water sources and primary schools in her name in Dengali and Freselam.
Dengali and Freselam, Ethiopia
Our Partner Communities
With your support last year, we made a big splash in Sasiga where clean water is
currently transforming lives. This year, we are partnering with Dengali and
Freselam to bring clean water, primary schools and sanitation programs.
Freselam is located near the Ethiopia-Eritrea border which is one of the driest
areas in the East African region. Dengali is situated in the Oromia region.
Access to clean water has hindered the development of Dengali and Freselam where
water-borne diseases constantly threaten the lives of the young and old.
The burden of collecting water as well as taking care of loved ones who become
ill falls solely on girls and women significantly reducing their chances of
attending school. Even if they could, school is very different; shade of plants
draped over propped-up sticks, no desks, no latrines and no water source.
This is where you come in. Run, Raise, Donate and help us change lives once
