Blog Action Day 2010: Water

October 15, 2010

This picture hangs above my bed on a large canvas. The kid’s name in Martin and he lives in the Upper Eastern Region of Ghana. Usually he’s sporting a cheeky grin, but this photo captures the first time he’d ever turned on a tap and experienced running water. I love the concentrated look on his face and intent in his clasped hands as though he didn’t want to waste a drop. Sensible little chap.

The charity that brought water to his home (The Mother of Mercy Babies’ Home in Sirigu) back in 2002 is called AfriKids. The photo was taken by its Director, Georgie Fienberg.
