"When you drink dirty water it's really yucky and bad for you! Then it will make you sick. And you stay home and you lay down all day. But if you drink clean water, it's good for you and you are fine and then you can play outside. You can play hide and seek with your friends, and go to school." - Eve Holder, age 6
We have two precious daughters who use to daily collect and carry their drinking water in Ethiopia. The rural village where they were born had a big muddy brown river close by where they could have been collecting dirty water. But someone somewhere built a hand dug well for their village so they could have clean water for the first years of their lives. Our family wants to Pay This Forward so other children can have clean water too.
"Whenever you did one of these things to someone overlooked or ignored, that was me—you did it to me.’"- Matthew 25:40
