At the last YAB meeting we learned about the importance of drinking water. We learned that Water.org goes to many different impoverished areas all around the world to get people the water that they need so desperately. Not only do they get clean water to people, they do it in a way that doesn’t disrupt their culture. This process takes a little longer, but worth it in the end. This talk was inspiring to say the least. The fact that people aren’t getting a basic need in life shows a lot about our world. Water.org steps up to help those who can’t help themselves.
The last few months, I’ve been volunteering at a place called Garden Terrace. It’s a home for Alzheimer’s patients that can no longer be taken care of by their families. We go down there and interact with them, doing different activities such as card making and gingerbread house decorating. I’ve had so much fun and would love to share the experience with all of you. It’s so uplifting going every week, knowing that I made their week a little more bearable.
