OKC metro-area charity hosts contest
The Water4 charity based in Oklahoma City is hosting a contest that urges contestants to express their gratitude for free-flowing water.
“Water4 offers a simple and sustainable solution to the water crisis by not just getting clean water to people but by teaching them to get clean water to themselves. The holiday season gives us the chance to give back and show how grateful we are for the good fortune with which we have been graced, to do something to help those who haven't been as lucky as we.”
The Greenlys, co-owners of Pumps of Oklahoma, founded Water4 in 2008 with the mission to not only provide water to at-risk, impoverished areas but also, to teach and provide employment opportunities through their inexpensive pumps and drilling methods.
Since its inception, the charity has helped meet the needs of more than 100,000 people for reasonable access to clean drinking water in countries such as Haiti, Sierra Leone, Uganda, and Rwanda.
