Some Unexpected Difficulties

We just learned that the City of Rio Rancho is doing extensive work down in the area we were going to walk in the upcoming water walk.  The event is still on, but we may have to take a different route to get there.  Our plans are to meet with the city tomorrow and see what can be done.  In the meantime, please keep us in your prayers.  Thank you and God bless!

In case you haven't noticed, we have a new widget on our page.  Every time a page loads, you will see a new fact about the water crisis.  It's located underneath the Blog Archive and is entitled 'Check This Out:'.  There are only eleven facts so far, but we plan to add more soon.  Thanks for reading and God bless!

Also, don't forget to come to the Rio Rancho Water Walk!  We hope to see you there.

Rio Rancho Water Walk

You may have read our previous post on the upcoming Water Walk in Rio Rancho!  We are so excited about this opportunity to once again raise money for a water well in Africa.  Let me go over the basics of the event again:

Who: H20: Hydration 2 Others

What: A mile-long walk from the park down to the river to collect water and bring it back in a jug as a reminder of what people across the world have to do every day.

When: April 20, starting at 10 A.M.

Where: Rio Vista Park in Rio Rancho.

Cost: A suggested donation of $10 per student, $25 per adult, and $50 per family.

Why: Because every year, the equivalent of the population of Los Angeles dies from lack of access to clean drinking water.  Really puts things in perspective doesn't it?  That's over 3.4 million people.  Currently, 780 million people lack access to clean drinking water.  That means every one in nine people die from lack of access to clean drinking water.  We are doing this to bring down those numbers.  Individually we can't do anything.  But if we stand together, we can bring down those numbers.  Join us in our Water Walk.

Rio Rancho Water Walk

Millions of people lack access to clean water. Many walk miles to gather water that is dirty and contaminated. H2O (hydration 2 others) is a group that raises money to install water wells in remote areas of rural Kenya. YOU can help us make a difference! Join us for a walk to experience what everyday life in Africa is like.

Bring an empty container and start at Rio Vista Park in Rio Rancho. We'll walk down to the Rio Grande River to collect water and then return to the park.

Suggested tax deductible donation is $10 for students, $25 for individuals, and $50 for families. However, any donation amount will be appreciated! We are currently fundraising for well #5 and are excited to have a matching donor! So, your donation will be doubled by our anonymous benefactors!

If you're unable to attend, you can still help! For information on how to make a donation through the mail or with Paypal please go to:

This event is hosted by h2O (hydration 2 others) and Celebration Baptist Church youth group. To find out more about h2O, look us up on Facebook or check out our blog at

We hope to see you and your friends and family on April 20!

The Girls

A few weeks ago, the women of Celebration Baptist Church spent the day making cloth pads for the girls in Kenya. Women and girls miss work and school every month when they lack adequate supplies during their monthly cycle. The kits we are supplying will last for years and will allow the women to discreetly take care of their needs, while going on with life as usual. This is a project we're really excited about! I am a birth doula and have done a lot of childbirth and breastfeeding education and support. Women's issues are where my heart is. I love that my church has come alongside us with this project. Thanks to Cathy C. for leading the charge!
