The Big Dig Appeal - "Janet's Story".

Published on Jun 17, 2012 by WaterAid

Meet Janet, a 39 year old mother from Kaniche village, Malawi. Last year she lost her son to cholera and still has to give her other children the same dirty water that killed him. This summer, with your help, we can transform the lives of Janet and her children with clean, safe water. Please support the The Big Dig Appeal. Visit thebigdig.org and text DIG to 70500 to donate £5.

Hi

Hi Olanike,

I ready your Janet story with interest as I did the others. What you are doing is great, though I am sure it is slower than you wish and discouraging at times. It will all come together. Why do things always take longer than we plan? Haha.

I tried to go on bigdig.org as the article suggested but I could not find it. Just wanted you to have this information.

Also, regarding that other matter you and I were working on: it is probably a good idea to postpone it for now. It appears is much more detailed and hard work over much time to get a good grant. But it can be a future goal I am sure.

Sounds like you are a very very busy and necessary young woman.

Ubuntu,

Your friend,

Wendy

P.S. I also put a story on my journal about my ex-husband and my finding my true self that I thought you might enjoy reading or passing along to other women who need this sort of encouragement.

Dearest Wendy

It's always a delight to read from you. I am glad you found time out of your busy schedule to read my posts.

So sorry about the mix up experienced in getting to the recommended website. It is www.thebigdig.org. Haha, looks like you missed out the word "the". Hope you'd still be interested in trying again. It'll certainly be worth the effort.

Thanks for all your support all the time, your advise is on the research is well taken and appreciated.

Be sure that I'll read your post and make the most of it. It is a privilege to get to learn more about you.

Love you always my senior friend,

Olanike
