In Burkina Faso, 45% of the children die before the age of 5...

Our Mission is to raise money to drill water wells and provide education for indigenous people around the world

Presently 884 million people in the world do not have access to safe water, and 1.4 million children die every year from diarrhea caused by unsanitary drinking water. This equates to one child dying every 20 seconds! (WHO/WATERAID).

There's good news! Clean sustainable sources of water have been found..

The time has come for Southern California to join together to change this sad predicament, to provide aid from one united community to another.

The Healing Hands Youth is a Fundraising Program was born from young teenagers in San Clemente and Laguna Beach in 2012 as a means to raise funds and awareness of the difficulties endured by indigenous people around the world.

Join us for a walk October 20th at the San Clemente Pier in San Clemente, CA to to build a well in Kenya and educate the children of Burkina Faso.

About 'Healing Hands'

Healing Hands was founded in 2011 by Emmy Lombard, a San Clemente High School student, who was called to action after meeting Susan Hough and being touched by the life-changing experiences that the villages of Burkina Faso had given Susan Hough.

Healing Hands Program Teens

In 2012, Emmy Lombard and a group of ambitious local teenagers will host the 1st Annual Fundraising Walk in San Clemente, CA.

"We want to help preserve the culture of the Dagara people of Burkina Faso, who are very connected to the natural world. They are a people who carry an ancient wisdom and an understanding of the great cycles of the earth. Yet, the villagers have faced not only droughts due to a constant shortage of rain, but droughts of medicine and education."

The Healing Hands Youth Program is as a means to raise funds and awareness of the difficulties endured by indigenous people around the world. At Wisdom Spring, we combine village wisdom with Western drilling technology. We funds wells, medicine, education and more. The goal: to reclaim the land and the rich culture that sustains indigenous culture.
