As you may know, my beloved mama, Docile, lost her life in a drowning incident last September. Her death has been one of the most devastating losses we've ever experienced as a family, a loss that has also shaken her friends and co-workers to the core.
Just as too much water can lead to death... so can too little.
Half a world away, in South Sudan, a group of people from the communities of Pacong and Mathiangkok are dying, not from drowning, but from the lack of clean water.
As a monument to her precious, generous life,
a water well will be drilled in her honor
and named after her... "Docile's Well"
Time is of the essence... the well must be drilled before the rainy season begins in May - can't imagine a better way to honor her on this bittersweet Mother's Day..
Will you join us through this link, give in her honor towards this well, and share?
