In an effort to give back to those in great need, we recently donated $2,000 to "Ryan's Well Foundation." The charity provides clean, safe water in developing countries. It's so easy to take for granted that we can turn on a faucet and fill a glass of water, press the trigger on the hose and water our lawns, brush our teeth or bathe as often as we want. Having accessible, clean water is such a basic need. It's surprising that in 2015, many people in developing counties still go without.
The Ryan’s Well Foundation grew from the commitment of one boy, Ryan Hreljac, who learned of the great need for clean and safe water in third world countries in his 1st grade class. With the support of friends, family and the community, Ryan raised enough money to build a well in Africa. In 1999, at age seven, Ryan's first well was built at Angolo Primary School in northern Uganda. Since then, Ryan’s Well has helped build over 927 water projects and 1120 latrines bringing safe water and improved sanitation to over 836,751 people.
