Today’s message is a stark reminder that we have great water just at the turning of a tap and not to ever take that for granted. Some are not so fortunate though. I vividly remember back in 1982 in Malawi and a great plane of Namitembo; the hot summer drought where young children were dying from thirst and in many cases of malaria and cholera through a lack of fresh clean drinking water.
You can imagine how delighted I was to hear the news this week, that as a result of our customers buying thirsty planet water from our restaurants, we have managed to secure a 20th water well in the most needy parts of central Africa. There are now 20 villages who have freshwater to sustain life. A big thanks to all of our customers who have made this happen.
As we play in the summer sun this year let’s be grateful for that simple, clean, clear freshwater.
Until next time…
