Thanks to this year’s Spring for the Water event, we fully funded two new water systems in Burundi in just one evening!
AUSTIN, Texas — Attendees showed their gratitude for life and clean water by turning out in force for the 2019 Spring for the Water, the annual fundraising event that raises money for water projects in Burundi, Africa.
