Summary:

Join us for an important presentation on the problems of water access in Africa and the critical work being done to create healthy communities. In a presentation rich with photos, USC trustee David Dornsife and his wife, Dana, will share the incredible work they are doing to bring fresh water, sanitation and hygiene to rural African villages.

Description:

The struggle for survival is incredibly difficult in many African countries. The Sahara Desert is expanding and few people live past their 50s. A major contribution to this difficult existence is the lack of clean drinking water, which leads to serious diseases and other problems. In a presentation rich with photos, USC trustee David Dornsife and his wife, Dana, will share their inspiring journey of bringing fresh water, sanitation and hygiene to rural African villages. They will discuss the ups and downs, successes, hard lessons, challenges and blessings they have experienced. Working with World Vision, their water projects have brought water to over 4,500,000 people in ten African countries, and should add 1,400,000 additional people in 2014. Don’t miss this important presentation on the problems of water access in Africa and the critical work being done to create healthy communities.

Co-sponsored by the Center for Black Cultural and Student Affairs, the Center for International Studies, the Center for Religion and Civic Culture, Marshall Business Student Government, the Office of Religious Life, Residential Student Government and the USC Dana and David Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences.
