Welcome to My Personal Paige
So picture this. You are outside working and it’s hot and you’re very thirsty. Of course, you walk inside, you grab a glass, fill it with clear water that you know is safe to drink, and you go on your way. This is a scenario we have all encountered and one that we do not normally think about. Now picture something else. You are outside working and it’s hot and you’re very thirsty. You or your wife or your child grab a bucket and make a 1-4 mi round trip to get cloudy water from a stream that seems to make your child ill every time they drink it, but there are no other options. This is a scenario that 1/3 of the world’s population encounters and is also one that we do not normally think about.
WE do not normally think about that second scenario, but the people at Water Mission do. Water Mission is a non-profit that works to provide clean drinking water to those who do not have access to it. They are located in the old Navy Base and they work in 55 countries, not only making systems to filter and sanitize drinking water, but also going to the towns in which these systems will be and educating the people on why clean water is important, how to use to clean water, and how to maintain the water treatment system.
Water Mission's main fundraising event, Walk for Water, is quickly approaching and I encourage you to sign up to walk or donate to a campaign. Any involvement in this wonderful organization can help the billions of people who do not have clean water available to them. For more information, don't hesitate to reach out to me or visit watermission.org
