Burkina Faso, Africa

I recently traveled to Burkina Faso, Africa where 85% of the country does not have access to clean water sources. After seeing firsthand the dire conditions the people of Burkina Faso live in, we at FLAG UP-MAIL IN have made a commitment to build over 1000 fresh water wells throughout Burkina Faso.

The United Nations ranks Burkina Faso as the third poorest country in the world. The population of Burkina Faso is approximately 14.8 million people, the average income is only about $400 per year. The average life expectancy of men is 51 years and women 54 years. One out of three children will probably die before they ever reach the age of ten. The deaths are mostly due to a lack of fresh water. The women of Burkina Faso often walk several miles to a dirty stream or stagnant pool, just to fill a bowl with water. We must act quickly and bring clean water to these people.

To help in the mission of building over 1000 wells, FLAG UP-MAIL IN LLC is committing at least $5.00 from each flag purchased from this website to go to build water wells in Burkina Faso. Wells can be completed for approximately $2200.00. You can make a difference in the lives of the people of Burkina Faso. To make a tax deductible donation e-mail mike@flagup-mailin.com or call 1-877-4-flagup.

Thank you for your support.
