It’s Mother’s Day. Hopefully all of you mothers out there enjoyed a relaxing day—a hot shower, a homemade breakfast, some tea or coffee, and some help with the laundry. We think every mother should, including mothers in the developing world.
According to UNICEF/WHO Joint Monitoring Programme (JMP), nearly one billion people live without access to clean water, with the majority living in Sub-Sahara Africa. Daily, five thousand children die needlessly due to waterborne illnesses. These are serious problems. Seeing these issues firsthand caused Josh Kurtz to greatly consider learning how to work towards eradicating such problems in small African communities. He recently attended a well digging training course that taught him how to find water, drill for water using three different techniques, and extract water in order to provide clean drinking water for communities without it.
