Looking for Something Worthwhile to Do?

Check out the RAF!

For many of us living in the United States, the only time we may have gone without water or sewage would occur due to a hurricane, tornado, earthquake, and so on. The Red Cross and FEMA would be called into the areas or states of emergency to help distribute bottled water and provide food and other items of comfort until our homes were repaired or rebuilt. It may take a few months or a few years, but we would go back to living our lives again…with clean water and a sewage system.

In Africa, there are still many families who do not have the luxury of clean water to drink. There is no sewage system in place for their children to go to the bathroom in a clean and safe environment. Open defecation is rampant in Ghana. And education remains to be a needed focus for African children.

But all of these things require money and humans. The Rescue Aid Foundation (RAF) seeks individuals who are looking to expand their vision of the world by making a difference in the world today. Not tomorrow or the next day. But TODAY. The rewards you receive from helping the RAF out in the field will not only change your life, but you will make lifelong friends.

Imagine working side-by-side with others as you show residents of Ghana how to plant a garden. Watch their faces as the plants break through the dirt and they see the seeds they sowed begin to grow. Working in a garden is only one example of the many ways volunteers help “in the field” with the RAF.

Clean water, sanitation, and education are human rights. They are the necessities of living. And yet, in the 21st Century, there are still areas in Africa where children do not enjoy these essentials of life that we take for granted every day.
