Well, here I go again. It has been three years and one knee replacement ago that I first walked for Hope Water Project. I made it my goal to walk 13.1 miles in the Detroit Marathon for the Pokot people who live Western Kenya, and I’m ready to do it again.
The Hope Water Project is an effort to help the Pokot. They are impoverished and lack access to clean water. For over a decade, Kensington Church has entered into a partnership with the Pokot to provide HOPE, one clean water well at a time.
More than 663 million people lack access to clean water. Every 21 seconds, a child dies from a water related illness. Women can walk up to 10 miles everyday to get water so that they and their children can live. As I just put a load of laundry in and dishes in the dishwasher, and oh yes, quenched my thirst with a tall glass of cold water, the Pokot women are still walking to that same muddy pool of water. Please consider a gift in some multiple of $21 to help me in my mission to walk for water. In the Pokot region, $21 will provide water to one person for a year. $21,000 will come close to building one well for a village. 21 is a great number. Please consider a gift in some multiple of $21 to help.
Money that is donated goes to putting in one more well in a village where water can give life not only to the Pokot people, but provide water for them to build schools, and churches .
