|We should never take clean water for-granted|
This blog, our little space, is a place for positivity and fun, a place to share our adventures around the world and our journey as a growing family but it's also a place for reflection and gratitude. Oh how easy we have it in compared to so many and how truly lucky we are to be living in the UK where everyone at a minimum has access to free, clean and drinkable water - this basic lifeline should not be overlooked.
I always feel that spending 19yrs of my life living in South Africa has given me some kind of insight to how scary poverty can be especially for children who are affected and no one can choose their nationality, no one has a choice over what circumstances they are born into and yet we more than too often see ourselves as individuals not as part of the global human race who need to help and support those less fortunate than ourselves.
|I am so grateful for living in a place that clean running water is freely available|
So when PumpAid got in touch with us and shared the amazing work this small but inspiring charity does I had to share it with you as they deal with one of the most important basic need that is having access to safe water and a decent toilet as well as educating communities about good hygiene and training them in water pump operation and so far they have made a real impact by installing 9000 pumps allowing 1.35 million people access to safe water but with millions still out there struggling there is still a lot of work to be done.
This week we celebrate World Hand Washing day which I think is a great reminder about how lucky we are to have access to clean water something which I am incredibly grateful for.
I know many of us are not in the position to donate but if you are a little really does go a long way with 90p of each pound going directly to the charities work in Malawi, if you do have a few pounds spare it's a fantastic charity to support - you can Donate Here
