As my time in China draws to a close I'm reflecting on how this experience has changed my perspective on the world. Although I have lived and worked in a developed area of China I have also traveled to rural areas of Asia where there is no indoor plumbling or sanitary water conditions. One of the unexpected benefits of working in China has been to meet people from all over the world who have enriched my life and broadened my understanding of our interconnectness. So, as I make plans to finish my time here I call on all my friends , those new friends from the last 18 months and old friends who I can't wait to see at home, to join together and contribute to a cause that is essential to all our lives.
In just one day, more than 200 million hours of women's time is wasted simply collecting water for domestic use. Lack of safe water and sanitation impacts a family's health, keeps children from getting an education, and traps millions in a cycle of poverty.
