Whew

10 Aug

We have clean water.

Thank goodness.

You never realize how much you rely on clean water until you don’t have it anymore.  When our landlords fixed the pipes earlier in the week, he stirred up the mud and it got mixed into the three filters and caused the issues.  All fixed and more importantly, we know where the filters are now just in case it happens again.

It also helped hit home the fact that there are people out there that deal with this all the time.  Muddy water is the norm for them.  In order to drink it, they have to boil it.

There are so many charities out there that work to make this a thing of the past.

Charity: Water, Just a DropWater Charity and WaterAid are just a few you find if you do a quick Google search.

We donated this weekend to Just a Drop and WaterAid.

Because no one should have to drink dirty water.

Please note: this is not a sponsored post or made to make anyone feel guilty.  No one knows who I am.  But I wanted to share, because it has affected me personally.
