Walk for Water

The annual Project Concern International (PCI) Walk for Water 5K highlights the crisis in many countries where people lack water, having to walk miles to get that precious commodity. At this event, participants walked for 5 kilometers while holding a bucket of water or putting one on their heads – to simulate what people in some countries do. The Musa family sisters, who are originally from Kenya and now live in City Heights, demonstrated how they used to walk with buckets full of water on their heads back in their homeland. (Some of the containers used for demonstrations were filled with sand in place of water.) The sisters were also there to talk about their first-hand experiences of dealing with water shortages.
