Today wasn’t our typical adventurous River Stewards mini-course. This particular Friday afternoon, my peers and I sat down together and watched a documentary about global water issues. This was a great experience to get a chance to relax and learn a little bit more about the history of people and their water.
The film, called “Blue Gold”, informed us on the necessity of having access to clean drinking water. It touched on an organization called “Ryan’s Well”. “Ryan’s Well” is a charity organization that helps provide clean drinking water to those who don’t have access to it, especially focusing on the communities suffering from this problem in developing countries.
“Those who have the ability to pay for water will have water, those who don’t, won’t. Therefore, it is a life or death situation.” - Blue Gold
