The Reality of Water   Leave a comment

For many in the world, getting water is not as easy as getting up and flipping the faucet on.

Getting water in Africa can involve traveling miles to the nearest well and possibly even paying to ensure you have safe water.  Traditionally, women bear the burden of procuring water for their families.

Contaminated water sources are among the chief reasons diseases such as cholera still thrive in areas of the world.  We can eradicate it if we provide safe drinking water to those who need it most.

No one should have to fear the ability to get water for their families.
