"Of the 42,000 deaths that occur every week
from unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation,
90% are children under 5 years old."

How does THAT sit with you?

I think about the faces of the kids I met in South Africa.

Their hungry bodies.

Their thirsty throats.

And it breaks my heart.

It's difficult to ignore when you put yourself in their shoes.

When you've hugged them.

Laughed with them.

Listened to their stories.

I think of them a million times a day.

And the hundreds of thousands of other thirsty children around the world.
