The world is a different place now than it was just a few months ago, and we’re finding ourselves surrounded by negative news and scary numbers. As people in countries across the globe shutter their stores, close their schools and stay inside, reality feels difficult to accept and harder to escape. But while we’re facing troubled times, one thing never changes – good things are still happening. People are standing together in solidarity leaving messages of hope for one another, applauding our hospital staff and more! Health workers fearlessly remain at the front lines, fighting to curb the spread of COVID-19….

Anastasia and her family members had to walk two hours to fetch water. That was before CMMB installed a rainwater harvesting system with a 10,500-gallon storage capacity at Anastasia’s school That’s enough to last the children in the school an entire school calendar year. The head teacher at Anastasia’s school says that the school dropout rate for adolescent girls was quite high due to some of the severe challenges around access to water, as well as hygiene and sanitation challenges. Now, having the CMMB rainwater harvesting system in place, the lives and health of Anastasia’s community and classmates have changed dramatically for the better.
