On this Giving Tuesday, people are encouraged to help others who might be in need.
After a weekend of spending, many people are focusing their attention on how they can give to those in need. Africa 6,000 International is one of the local organizations reminding people of the opportunity to give back. The Erie-based organization has a mission of connecting residents of several African nations with clean water.
Executive Director of Africa 6,000 International, Teresa Murtland, tells us, “You don’t want to put pressure on people, but if they have the dollars to give; if they have the heart to give… What better project to give to than the thirstiest people on the earth who don’t have water to drink?”
Africa 6,000 International has provided access to water in more than 70 villages and four refugee camps.
