Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF

Kids you are helping by Trick-or-Treating for UNICEF—Rosie Bell in Nicaragua

Almost 800 million people around the world don't have access to clean, safe water including one third of the people living in Nicaragua's country side. Until recently 12 year old, Rosie Bell used to get up at the crack of dawn and walk a mile and a half to fetch water for her family from a creek. Despite all this effort the water was unclean and dirty. Consuming the unclean water caused a nearly fatal case of cholera for Rosie's younger brother.

UNICEF has installed a solar powered water pump and filtration system for a new well in this Nicaraguan community. The new well provides pure clean water that is pumped directly into households. Rosie Bell and other kids are now safe from contracting fatal water borne diseases. Rosie Bell no longer has to take the daily long walk and can attend school.
