2014 Success

As many of you know, Blue H2O dedicated the 2014 season to raising funds to bring running water into the Operating Room at the Kawolo Hospital in Uganda. Mission accomplished – and then some.

But this isn’t about us. It’s about what your donations have already done.

In brief, our 2014 Mac Campaign generated $4,013 and here’s what it did:  

  • Purchased three (3) 200W large solar panels that power the submersible pump

  • Purchased one (1) 80W small solar panel that powers the disinfection system

  • Purchased installation brackets and bolts to secure solar panels to hospital roof (to prevent theft)

  • Paid for wiring to and from solar panel to control panel, then control panel to submersible pump 243 feet below earth surface

  • Paid for wiring to and from disinfection system

  • Purchased all electrical conduit to protect the wires to and from pump to controls to solar panels

These components were critical to the mission of delivering clean, safe water to the Kawolo Operating Room. Your donations allowed our friends at H2O4All to install and build out the following this past August (2014):

  • A new onsite well which is producing in excess of 10,000 liters of clean, safe water a day for the hospital

  • The installation of four (4) 10,000 liter Storage Tanks

  • For the first time ever - Delivery of fresh water supplies to the Operating   Room, Outpatient department, Laboratory, and the Male and Pediatrics Wards

  • Upgrades to the new water system in the Maternity Ward

  • Sanitation and purification systems

  • Security systems to protect the new project

  • Complete scrub, scrape and repaint of all hospital rooms

FINALLY! THEY HAVE RUNNING WATER THROUGHOUT THE HOSPITAL – A FIRST - THANKS TO YOU.

We hope that you feel confident and proud that the donations we receive are put to work immediately and for specific purposes. To all of our Blue H20 friends, we thank you. Together we’ve made a difference. 

2015 Success

Congratulations to every one of you for helping us reach our 2015 goal of $8,000 in donations. Mission Accomplished.

Per our promise to all of you, we've turned that $8,000 over to The Navajo Water Project via DigDeep, and they've already put those donations to work.  Please see the message below from Dig Deep Executive Director, George McGraw to understand what an impact YOU'VE made. Be proud of YOUR role in something so important.

The Bensons are a family of eight living in rural New Mexico. They have three dogs, two cats and love to watch the TV show Friends together. Just like your family, the Bensons look forward to the holidays for good food, laughter and holiday cheer.   But unlike your family, the Bensons struggle to get enough clean water to celebrate anything. For years, the holidays have meant collecting water in sub-zero weather just to take a bath or cook a holiday meal. But not any more. Last week the Navajo Water Project brought the Benson family running water for the first time ever. This is what happened:

Every American family should have running water, but 40% of Navajo Americans live without it. Together, we're doing something about it.

 

Team Blue H2O! Your efforts to bring our work and this message to people all over the country is paying off already.

Together, you raised over $8,000... enough to bring clean running water to 2-3 homes like the Benson's. Every time you turn on the tap to get a drink of water, smile and imagine all of the happy families you've impacted.

Here's to changing the world, together!
