“Source water at four of ACR’s school installation sites prior to filtration through our systems. Water high in terribly unsafe contaminants is evident in every part of the cities in Nepal.” (Kathmandu, Nepal)
Listen up people! A Child’s Right, the incredible water relief organization covered in the June/July issue, has issued a challenge: How much would someone have to pay you to drink a glass of dirty water? We’re not talking about over-oaked and over-alcoholed Chardonnay here, were talking about water with fecal waste, dirt, and bacterial contamination 209 times the safe standard.
Yes, it is messed up to think that hundreds of thousands of kids are forced drink contaminated water, but in what can only be described as a karmic opportunity, you can help change the situation by supporting A Child’s Right in their efforts to install water purification systems in youth facilities in the urban areas of developing countries. Do it! You know you want to! You’ll get this incredible feeling not unlike the first you tried an aged Grand Cru Burgundy.
Here are some more photos from Mahendra Adarsha Secondary School, which was one of ACR’s installation sites on a recent trip to Nepal.
“Our first site of the Nepal Project: prior to our work with the school, all of the students at Mahendra Adarsha Secondary School shared a single cup to drink well water that was stored in a solitary bucket.“
“The school’s only water supply came though old and broken taps, and was unsafe for drinking. During this project we worked to provide each site with a sanitary place to access our purified water. Here a student patiently waits for our clean drinking water station to be completed.“
“Students lined up to refill their glasses again and again at the shiny new clean drinking water station.“
