It was an honor to be invited to Project Concern International’s 5th annual “Walk for Water” event held at Mission Bay Park. PCI is an amazing organization here in San Diego that operates all over the globe. Their mission is to prevent disease, improve community health and promote sustainable development worldwide. PCI works in vulnerable communities to improve health and create long-term change by helping people help themselves.
At least 2.6 billion people, 41 percent of the global population, do not have access to any sort of basic sanitation system. The lack of access to clean drinking water leads to disease, absence from school and work, sickness, and death. In fact, waterborne diseases are responsible for more deaths annually than war and are the leading killer for children under the age of five.
It was a great to be there and to have an opportunity to spread the word about Omo Child to all the participants. Over 500 students from 30 San Diego area schools, along with high-profile sponsors like Hoehn Land Rover helped raise nearly $70,000 breaking previous event records! Huge success! Thank you PCI for having Omo Child we are already looking forward to next year.
