  • This special project is being conducted in direct collaboration with and permission of elected leadership of the Navajo Nation.

    $75 sponsors a Navajo family for a lifetime Sawyer PointONE filter, along with a bucket, special modification hardware, delivery and training for a lifetime of clean, safe water.

A Special Gift Today for the Navajo Nation

  • The Navajo Code Talkers were a big part of the US victory of Iwo Jima and many other campaigns which resulted in victories during World War II
    • Served in the US Marine Corps
  • The Code Talkers provided the U.S. military with an unbreakable code which utilized the Navajo language.

Why a Water Campaign for the Code Talkers?

  • Our Navajo collaborators tell us that the Code Talkers have a special connection to water. They sailed over the great waters (the oceans) and protected their fellow Americans and brothers in arms. 
  • Currently about 30% of the population in the Navajo Nation does not have running water in their homes. Running water is critical in disease prevention. The surviving Code Talkers and their descendants need assistance especially during this time.
  • Due to red tape they and their descendents/people continue to live in ways most of us would find unacceptable, including water scarcity and lack of safe drinking water.
  • Without clean water the Navajo Code Talkers and descendants are at high risk for
    • Disease transmission
    • Dehydration (from disease symptoms)
  • WWB is conducting a special campaign on Memorial Day in honor of the Code Talkers who gave their lives in war. 
    • This project is part of our Navajo Nation COVID-19 response, for which we have already raised over $40,000. 
    • You can honor the Code Talkers with a donation which will provide a guaranteed lifetime filter for clean water.
    • $75 provides a Navajo family with a Sawyer PointONE filter.
    • An anonymous donor has offered a dollar for dollar $3000 challenge grant 
    • $6000 = 80 additional Navajo Families equipped with Sawyer PointONE filters  
    • We’re already up to at least 550 families funded — this Memorial Day campaign will mean over 600 families with access to clean, safe drinking water.
  • This Memorial Day weekend is an excellent time to reflect on the courage and sacrifice of service members killed in action during WW2. The sacrifices being asked of us pale in comparison, but the outcome that can be made by your thoughtful donation is just as important and impactful. 
  • Please help us spread the news of this campaign to all your military and veteran contacts or consider making a donation on behalf of a military member.

The Problem

  1.  Every  24 hours, 10000 or more children die because of dirty water
2. Death by dirty water threatens millions of young children and their families.
3. Water is most definitely a women’s (mother’s) issue. Women and their children are disproportionately affected by water inaccessibility and waterborne disease. Contaminated water causes 90% of the deaths of children under age 5, but it also contributes to miscarriages and vaginal diseases, as well as chronic “common” disease such as intestinal parasites and diarrhea. This is borne out by our own data collection, particularly in Haiti. In developing countries, the work of fetching water falls almost exclusively to women and girls; in fact, the task of carrying water is often cited as a reason that girls cannot be spared to attend school. We hear over and over as well about women and girls who must pay, often with their bodies, to gain access to water for their families.
