The end of the summer is always bittersweet for me. As kids go back to school, I transition into fall with a fresh perspective thinking, “What’s next? Who needs my skills?” This year, as I watch Hurricanes Harvey and Irma on their path of destruction, I feel a tug at my heart strings. Like so many others, I’m not sure how to help. I want to do something, but I’m not sure what. It pains me to see water causing so much damage and taking lives.
So there I am- contemplating the next step, when I receive a call to help in Uganda for the Africa Water Safety Outreach 2017, an initiative aimed at sharing Water Safety Education and Drowning Prevention in Africa.
I’m going to Africa. It’s the next logical step. I don’t have much time, but I know I can do this with some help. Just a share or a like or a forward. Advice on traveling in Africa. Mosquito repellent. Anything and everything helps.
