Matthew’s Walk


Matthew’s Walk

For his Bar Mitzvah, Matthew from Chicago organized a fundraising walk to raise money to help drill a clean water well in rural Malawi. The walk also raised the awareness about the hundreds of thousands of women and children in that country who walk up to 5 miles a day to the nearest water source to get a day’s supply of often polluted water for their family’s daily needs for drinking, cooking, bathing, and cleaning. His well literally saved lives and helped transform a village.
