Two years living in rural South Africa, where the lucky pulled their water from a bore hole and the unlucky walked miles away to gather theirs from a questionable open source, I began to realize the luxury of potable water. And as my eyes and my habits adjusted to village life, I began to understand the luxuries of adequate food, competent care, and available medications. Ultimately, everything comes back to health. The ability of a baby to grow, a father to work, a sister to study, all of those things rely on a healthy body. And so if a few words penned by me can be a part of the solution, packaged in with the vision and efforts of governments, NGOs, private sector, and people – people attempting to exceed survival, people wanting the chance to thrive – then I offer my ink and hope you will offer an email and click in the blue box to your right!
