To the Times of Ti:
When we got up this morning we walked a few feet to turn on a light. We walked a few more feet to a bathroom. We turned on a faucet and the water ran. At the closet we selected clothing for the day. We found food to eat in the kitchen.
In the Andes, on the Horn of Africa, and the Sub Sahara hundreds of thousands of people have none of these conveniences. Food and water are scarce. Women walk for hours to get water for their family to drink. The need is great for food and wells for water. Farming and raising animals is impossible unless you have water.
The CROP Walk will raise funds so these desperate needs may be met. We have made improvements. It used to be 1 out of every 6 were starving. Now it is 1 out of every 7. (That’s still not acceptable.)
Please decide to walk with us. Get some sponsors and meet us at the Heritage Museum in Bicentennial Park on Saturday, Oct. 13, at 1 p.m.. Call for paper work and information: Bob and Sue Johnson 543-6127 or Bob and Jan Whitaker 543-6826.
