Brooke Elementary students are participating in the WE Walk for Water campaign to raise money for a well in Haiti.
The 7.0 magnitude earthquake killed thousands of people, and left buildings in shambles. Wells were destroyed, leaving Haiti in an extreme water crisis. Haiti is having water issues right now because their water has been contaminated with deadly waterborne illnesses ,and it is now undrinkable. Not including the water crisis Haiti is also suffering from extreme poverty, and food insecurity.
We want to make a difference in the world by contributing to a clean water source for the people of Haiti.
We Walk for Water is a school wide activity that shows how hard girls in places like India and Kenya work to collect water. We will be participating in a school wide water walk where we will carry jugs of water, while walking to Sunbury Park, collecting water, and walking back to school. The idea is for us to experience what it would be like to live in a country where water is not so easily accessible. The We Walk for Water will take place on April 27 in the afternoon.
Let's not talk the talk but walk the walk.
