Evelyn Burdecki (2nd from left) winner of the TV show “Jungle Camp” realizes one of her dreams by supporting the building of wells in areas of Africa that otherwise would not have a water source – and she is supported in this endeavor by the YOU Foundation. To the right of Evelyn is YOU Foundation Founder and UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador Ute-Henriette Ohoven.
In the Volta region, many communities support themselves by farming. A hygienic and functioning water source is not only necessary for children and families but also for the planting of agricultural crops. Without these crops, the communities can not feed themselves nor earn any income. Unclean water or not enough water can translate into hunger and thirst for the people of this region. Furthermore, many children become ill because they do not have clean water to drink.
