It's not because I'm lazy to put on my suit or because my alarm clock didn't ring this morning (although that happens to me too often) but to support a cause that is particularly close to our hearts at Un Verre d' Water.

Pajama Day is an event invented by our Belgian friends to raise awareness of the cause of children in long-term hospitalization. Participate with us in this special day and maybe win a beautiful pajamas 😉!

Every hour counts!

February 10 2023

A magnitude 7,8 earthquake struck Turkey and northern Syria on Monday February 6 causing the destruction of several major cities including Kahramanmaras the epicenter and Aleppo in Syria. The latest assessment indicates at least 20 dead but it continues to increase!

The concern is now for the 300 people who find themselves without housing but also without drinking water in freezing cold and even in the snow. With each natural disaster, too many people are dying either from preventable diseases or from drinking unsafe water.

Milk and Love!

Coming to Chad at the age of 20, Monique Burkhardt was entrusted with two abandoned newborns, doomed to certain death. For her and her husband Jeanpierre, this is the beginning of a great story in the service of Chadian orphans. Since then, the small structure has grown and has become the Betsaleel orphanage, which will save and accompany more than 150 children until adulthood.

The couple continued their work as far as the capital, N'Djamena, then handed over to local teams. After 50 years of mission, Monique looks back on the exceptional adventure which led her and her husband to give milk and love to the orphan children of Chad and to accompany them until adulthood.

We issue tax receipts to all donors, however not all donors will be able to benefit from a tax deduction.

On the other hand, donors residing outside the European Union cannot claim a tax reduction in their country of origin.


Is my payment secure?

Our donation solution, Donorbox, uses Stripe's secure token mechanism. Card numbers are tokenized (the number is replaced by an indecipherable string, ie: `tok_fafds23423 ') before debiting the card. Registered cards and bank accounts for recurring donations are also tokenized. As a result, Donorbox and Un Verre d'Eau have no record of the donor's card number in their database. This means that hackers will never get sensitive banking information from us.


Can I make my donation in currencies other than the euro?

Your donations can be made in euros, pounds sterling, dollars, Canadian dollars and Swiss francs.
