New World Water

My good friend and international ADK correspondent, Tim, is doing incredible things in Africa, regardless of his humble persona. He’s keeping a blog, and I’m forever grateful for him sharing his efforts with the world. To me, that’s the only way to change things — connect human beings with stories.

Sometimes we take the littlest things for granted, such as water.

Quite possibly the cruelest consequence of this harsh reality is that too many HIV-positive mothers are forced to decide between breastfeeding and possibly transmitting the virus to their newborn, or mixing formula powder with contaminated water, risking dysentery, typhoid, bilharzia, cholera, or other water-borne, diarrheal diseases that account for 18% of the under-five mortality worldwide

Head over to Pamoja to read more about Women & Water in Malawi, along with other compelling stories from the “cradle of civilization”.
