Ethiopia - Clean Water Project and Donations (February 2015)
Clean water equals prosperity and stability. Prince Ermias Sahle-Selassie Haile - Selassie, the President of the Crown Council of Ethiopia and the proud recipient of the Grand Cross of Merit of our Order's Companionate of Merit, believed that this was a challenge which could and must be met. He created the Water Initiative for Africa (WIA) and, whilst working closely with experts, friends and supporters at the International Strategic Studies Association , he has helped to develop technologies which could cheaply bring pure water to all Africans in a way which would eliminate vulnerability to water-borne diseases. The Order of Saint Lazarus is a proud contributor to this project and to date have donated thousands of dollars, both as an Order and also by means of individual donations by our members for the clean water project.
