As the leading Global Payroll Service Provider, managing Local, Offshore, and Expatriate Payrolls in over 140 countries from global offices in Chicago, Budapest, and Singapore we have a vested interest in the welfare of other countries. Therefore, Celergo is teaming with charity: water to help bring uncontaminated water to men, women and children in developing areas around the world.

Here are the facts:

  • Unsafe water causes 80% of all sickness and disease, which contributes to more deaths than poverty, violence and war.
  • 800 million people on the planet don’t have access to water in the form of a clean resource.
  • 90% of the 30,000 deaths that occur every week from unsafe water and unhygienic living conditions are amongst children under five years old.

During our campaign, scheduled to run from April 2nd to July 2nd, we committed to raise $15,000 which is enough to fund the first of many water projects in deserving communities.

With your help we exceeded our goal!

We have raised $15,428 for charity: water which is enough to grant about 237 people access to clean, safe drinking water. Thank you to everyone who made a charitable donation and helped us achieve our goal. It is greatly appreciated and will go a long way towards helping those in need.

Our donations will be deployed at the end of this quarter (September 2013) to fund spring protection systems in Rwanda. Spring protection systems safely store and pipe clean water to communities from natural springs. You can periodically check back on our website for updates on how the project is progressing over the next 18 months.

We will also post photos of the completed project, and provide GPS coordinates and news directly from the communities.

You will be able to see how lives have been changed through your generosity.
