FGI Finance Helps Sponsor a Well through charity: water
NEW YORK, June 07, 2012 – FGI Finance (www.fgifinance.com) has sponsored a water project through charity: water (www.charitywater.org). FGI donated $5,000 that will go toward the building of a well scheduled to be built in Cambodia by early 2013.
100% of the money raised at charity: water goes directly towards water projects for people in need in developing countries. From the date of a donation, the project is completed within 12-18 months. FGI donated $5,000 back in November 2011 and the well is set for an early 2013 completion. A typical charity: water project gives an average of 250 people clean water, void of the diseases that kill more each year (30,000 people each week) than all forms of violence, including the wars also affecting these countries. These wells also reduce the time spent collecting water, allowing women time to earn extra income and children the opportunity to get an education. Further benefits include enhanced irrigation systems that improve farming and increase the food supply to these communities as well.
“FGI Finance is proud to be working with charity: water and assisting their efforts in Cambodia. We are glad that we could support such a worthy cause and are excited to help bring access to clean water and educational services in an area with such need,” said David DiPiero, President and CEO of FGI.
