TORONTO, April 2, 2014 /CNW/ - Ontario Energy Group is proud to announce support of Plan Canada as part of their "Gifts of Hope" program, which provides ethical gifts abroad to further sustainability in developing nations.
Ontario Energy Group (OEG) has helped Plan Canada to raise over $4,000 for the goal of providing clean water and sanitation facilities for families, and giving community members the skills needed to protect their water supply and ensure it will be there for future generations.
The contribution aims to improve sustainable water and sanitation efforts in these communities, which have limited access to clean water and are at risk for waterborne diseases from contaminated water or insufficient sewage systems. The initiative supports the well-being of children in these communities by reducing the workload of transporting water to remote regions, allowing children to benefit from more time to pursue an education.
Outside of Canada, there are still billions of world citizens without access to clean, safe water which is critical to the growth and sustainability of any society. According to UNESCO's study on world resources, 783 million people worldwide lack clean water for drinking, cleaning, and bathing; and 2.5 billion lack access to basic water sanitation.
OEG takes great pride and commitment in contributing to Plan Canada's international efforts, and are excited to continue to support sustainable solutions like water and sanitation in developing communities through the Gifts of Hope program.
