A non-profit organization dedicated to supplying the people of Cameroon, Africa with clean drinking water, founded by my good friend Sam Dinga in the name of his sister, Ma Kah Dinga who passed away due at age 40 in 2009 due to stomach complications. Sam, originally from Cameroon, has pledged to build 40 wells throughout Cameroon in her name.

"The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that only 44 percent of the population of the North West region has access to potable water (WHO, 2009). The rest of the province’s 1.2 million inhabitants either drink from streams and lakes polluted with human and animal feces and suffer from water-borne diseases such as cholera, diarrhea, and typhoid or have to walk up to seven miles to collect clean drinking water from sporadically placed water pumps which are unreliable and hard to maintain. The Northwest Province is 90 percent dependent on farming for survival. Its lack of clean drinking water is exacerbated by agricultural deforestation, aquifer depletion, and soil erosion."

ETA: my pieces, unfortunately did not sell this year, but as I understand it, they raised enough money for two new wells, so there you go! YAY!
