During his trip Aaron and the other volunteers were promptly directed to sites where clean water was needed the most. “It was a very eye opening experience”, Aaron stated. Prior to receiving help, many families had been forced to get drinking water from wells that had not been tested for pathogens. This left many of the residents ill. Fortunately, “Waves for Water” trained their volunteers to set up clean water stations to ensure that these families were getting the safe water they needed. In addition, volunteers left supplies and taught residents how to maintain the clean water system themselves.
