Stephanie's going to Uganda!

Today I'm taking a break from talking about card-making. Instead I'd like to share a more personal announcement with you!
(Stephanie on the far right)

My daughter Stephanie has been working with a non-profit called H2O 4 ALL for her PhD and now as a paid intern. She has been driving twice a week to their office in Oakville (about 1.5 hrs away from us, one way) and will continue to do so for the next year. Stephanie really enjoys the work they do and being a part of it. You can read more about her research here. The message below is from Stephanie. Any support you give towards this project she is part of would be very much appreciated!

Dear friends, 
In August I will have the privilege of being part of the H2O 4 ALL team that delivers a safe water supply access point to a care centre for the elderly in Uganda! 

 

The video above helps explain why the elderly in sub-Saharan Africa are a particularly vulnerable population and why H2O 4 ALL is a unique NGO fit for the task of addressing their water needs.

Over the past three years I've worked closely with H2O 4 ALL. Their evidence-based approach to work and the passionate people that drive the organization are an inspiration to me.

If you would like to support H2O 4 ALL directly, please help us reach our goal of raising $25,000 in 25 days: here

Many thanks,
Stephanie <3

You'll really have an empty nest. Sounds like Stephanie is on her way to change the world for the better, God bless her. So very smart and kind. Such a good cause. You must be so very proud.

Congratulations Stephanie....what an honor. FYI: check out Planet Water.org. This is a charity started by my son-in-law Mark Steele. He provides clean water pumps in third world countries. His concentration is mostly ASIA. I'm so proud of him. I know you will be rewarded with smiles as you do your work. I went to Cambodia once to view an installation at a school and the smiles and wonderment from the children was incredible. Pure joy. Enjoy your deployment. And, safe travels.
