That’s almost one in ten people worldwide or twice the population of the United States. The majority live in very isolated rural areas and spend many hours every day walking to collect water for their family. Not only does walking for water keep kids out of school or take up time that parents could be used to earn money, but the water often carries diseases and parasites that can make everyone sick. However, creating access to clean water means better education, income, and health – especially for women and kids.
Please join the Shoals Area churches in this effort to bring CLEAN WATER to families and communities that would otherwise be drinking dirty, unhealthy water! We hope you’ll make plans to be a part of our Walk4Water at McFarland Park on Sunday, April 18. Remember any and every donation helps—you can also help by liking/sharing our walk page to raise awareness of this great need for clean water that exists for so many around the world!
