Welcome to the WFU Hydrating Humanitate Spring 2022 fundraising portal!
This spring our fundraising goal is $7,000! We are so excited to make a difference in a countless number of lives, but we can not do it without YOUR help! Thank you so much for supporting Hydrating Humanitate, Hydrating Humanity, and clean and safe water for those of us who do not have access to it!
Hydrating Humanitate ("HH") is a Wake Forest University Student Organization that is working to combat the water-borne illness crisis in Eastern Africa. As reflected in our name, HH at Wake Forest seeks to serve in the grand spirit of "Pro Humanitate." Found on the national hydratinghumanity.org website, "Our mission is to help the poorest areas of the world obtain real and lasting transformation at every level. This begins with meeting the fundamental need for clean water, and helping improve their physical, financial and spiritual lives along the way. We believe the most impactful spearhead into these communities is clean, safe water projects and hygiene education."
