You see, the reason our fridge is filled with photos of communities that lack access to this resource is because I work for an organization called Blood:Water Mission. We are an organization that empowers communities to work together against the HIV/AIDS and water crises in Africa. I can't think of any place else I would rather be than fighting alongside these amazing communities for this basic right, communities like this one in Larachi, Kenya, which one of my staff was able to visit this year.
These families of Larachi have moved their homes down to the bottom of the mountain where they lived to have more access to development in the hopes they will one day have clean water and medical care. Here's where you come in. You can enter into their story and stories like theirs throughout Africa by being a part of a movement. A movement for clean water.
