THE STORY:

Hanrahan Jason wrote -

Hello, we are fifth graders at Plainfield Elementary - a school of mostly low income, English language learners. We recently read a book that changed the way we see the world. The story of Salva Dut, as told by Linda Sue Park in A Long Walk to Water, opened our eyes and inspired us to open hearts. The idea that millions of people do not have access to clean water while millions of others take it for granted daily is a devastating reality. Water is life and clean water means health and education. This is why we are raising funds to help Water for South Sudan drill wells, providing access to clean water for hundreds of thousands of South Sudanese. After drilling over 282 wells, the "Iron Giraffe" drilling rig is failing and must be replaced so this work can continue. The cost is about $500,000. For more details, you can visit www.waterforsouthsudan.org We have issued a challenge for other schools in our district to join the D62 Iron Giraffe Challenge - https://youtu.be/Yd0lJcfTN50 - and we hope you will join us to help bring clean water to the people of South Sudan. If you cannot make a donation, you can still help - every time you turn on a faucet, please keep in mind that millions of people would give anything to have what you have.
