THE STORY:

Hailey Diamond wrote -

In my school book club I read the book A Long Walk to Water by Linda Sue Park, about the challenges many people face in the area of Sudan. While we can turn on our faucets and get clean drinking water, life in the Sudan is very different. For much of the year their land is dry and this forces millions of people each year to leave their village homes in search for water. Some have to abandon their homes and move all together while others, usually, women and children, are forced to trek miles every day to collect water from ponds, marshes, ditches, or hand-dug wells. This water is often contaminated with disease-causing parasites and bacteria. The results are pain, sickness, even death, especially among infants and children. Water is usually something we take advantage of, that we dont even think about while we pour half a cup in to the sink. In the book A Long Walk to Water, Nya, a village  girl, walks 8 hours a day just to get a little bit of bad, contaminated water, while we just have to walk to the kitchen, about a 8 second walk. While Salva, the main character, covers Africa on foot and helps thousands of 'lost boys' escape from the war. I was very affected by this book and want to do what I can to help build a well and bring them clean water. Safe water brings new hope and opportunities to South Sudan's people, empowering them to change their lives.
