BENEFITING: Living Water International
EVENT DATE: May 27, 2013
I am walking in the Bolder Boulder 10K to raise money for Living Water International. This is an organization that our church partners with to drill water wells in under- developed countries. I live in a rural area and we currently use well water which is wonderful. Prior to drilling a well we used water from springs that gathered into a cistern. Our cistern was a large concrete box that had to be cleaned occasionally with bleach as we might find a dead mouse floating in it or other critters. Our water eventually became contaminated from the wildlife that milled around in the springs. Let's just say, "I so appreciate our well water!" Good clean water is definitely Life-Saving!!
I think that providing good clean water is one of the greatest ways that we can help people, mainly children, in under-developed countries!
Thank you for your help,
