Let's provide together solar-powered, running water for kids at an Ebola Orphanage in Sierra Leone.  The piped water supply will enhance cleanliness, providing better health and sanitation for the kids.  All children should have access to running water.  Together we can make this a reality.  Running water is not a luxury.

We can make this happen.  Every bit counts.  Let's do this together.
