A Message From Ana Carolina Correa
My journey started with a book... The Wine to Water book. Two years ago, as I read through Doc Hendley's story in Darfur, Sudan I learned about the thousands of lives that are affected by the lack of clean water. Ever since, I've developed a passion for learning more about this matter and spreading awareness to those, who like me two years ago, are oblivious to this world issue.
This past march, I traveled to the Dominican Republic with my FIU's WTW Chapter. There, the facts that I had learned and read about became a reality. I experienced first hand what is it like to have limited access to water, which is not guaranteed to be clean unless filtered or boiled (not even bottled water is 100% safe). After going to different homes and surveying how effective the ceramic filters had been, hearing how newborns were safe from water-borne diseases, and seeing how happy women were because they no longer got sick not only reaffirmed my passion, but showed me how even a small effort like my own, when placed together with the efforts of so many, can really make difference.
As I prepare to travel to Honduras next May, I look forwards to learning and emerging into a new culture, to living (even if its for a short 10 days) someone else's life, and in return, give my time and effort to the simple but yet so valuable necessity, that is access to clean water.
