Why Water?

Health and sanitation.

Unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation cause 80% of diseases and kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war. Children are especially vulnerable, as their bodies aren't strong enough to fight diarrhea, dysentery and other illnesses.

90% of the 42,000 deaths that occur every week from unsafe water and unhygienic living conditions are to children under five years old. Many of these diseases are preventable. The UN predicts that one tenth of the global disease burden can be prevented simply by improving water supply and sanitation.

We are coming to Fiji...

Members of the Board of Directors of Wananavu Kadavu as well as some of
our friends and supporters are coming to Fiji in April, each brining their
own experience and talents that they are offering to contribute to the
benefit of the community. While in Fiji we are planning to complete the
Wananavu Kadavu Water Project. Additionally, while in Fiji we would like
to contribute other services to the Kadavu community. Please find below a
summary of our members our Broad and our supporters who will be
participating in our April 2010 trip and their areas of expertise:

Serena Martineau, who has been part of Wananavu Kadavu from the very
start, has offered many hours to our water project. As a talented artist
and photographer, she will also be involved in the following:

- Teaching the children or whoever would like to be involved, to hand
paint on canvas. We will then be bringing these canvases back to the
States to be auctioned off, and all monies received will go back into the
funds for the Wananavu Kadavu project

- taking photographs of Kadavu that will be auctioned off, with all proceeds
to be used  for the Wananavu Kadavu  project.

- providing help for the Wananavu Kadavu project in any way possible and
will be bringing over supplies such as clothing and educational items.

The multi-talented Dexter Taylor whose background includes experience as a
successful business owner, handyman, and magician, has offered to be
involved in the following efforts:

-Helping build and repair anything of need.

-Dexter has been a professional magician for over 35 years and has offered
to put on a magic show for the people of  Kadavu

-Willing to help in any way needed.

-Bringing building supplies, anti-bacterial ointment,  first aid supplies.

Heinz J. Mahler, our legal adviser will be joining us later in April to
assist with completing the water project construction.

As founder of Wananvu Kadavu I will bring with me building supplies for
the next water project and clothing for the Fijian families we have grown
to love. I am looking forward to seeing familiar faces and enjoying the
delicious food they prepare.

While we are in Fiji we will be working closely with Ben Sorensen who has
been our project manager working in Fiji since 2009. Through his many
hours of service working side-by-side with community we are nearly
complete with this first project to bring better drinking water to the
village of Kadavu. We plan on completing this water project during our
April 2010 stay in Fiji. Without Ben’s hard work and dedication to
Wananavu Kadavu, our friends in Kadavu and Fiji and friends around the
world who have given financial support, shelter, food, this project would
not have been possible.

I would also like to thank Scott Sorensen for his dedication, time and
skills in helping to start the Wananavu Kadavu project as well has his
continued support of our efforts.

If you would like to donate to our on going efforts to bring safe drinking
water to the people of Fiji.  All money goes directly to Wananavu Kadavu~Water Project.
