A Message From Scott McIlquham
Growing up on the shores of Lake Ontario in the 60's, we spent the bulk of our summers near (and in) the water. As kids, we thought we had it tough hauling buckets of fresh water to the cottage from my grandmother's house at the top of the hill, a mere 30 second walk away (even less if we were running up the hill to see a train pass!) Back then I couldn't even conceive of having to spend hours each day fetching water for drinking and washing, much less imagine that 50 years later there would still be places in the world where that's how children would spend their days.
But here we are ... and knowing that the simple addition of a cistern to catch and retain the water from the rainy season can rectify the problem, the decision to pitch in and help is an easy one.
