End of the Year Campaign

December 3rd, 2014 9:21 PM

The University of Maine chapter of Engineers Without Boarders is raising money to build a water collection system for a small community in Ecuador. These people have been living with very little water and what they do have is contaminated. They are sick and thirsty. We want to help them, but we can’t do it alone. Our goal is to raise $5000 by the end of the month to help them out. If you can spare even a few dollars it would mean everything to this community. And we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for helping us make a difference!
