  1. Congratulations Charlie! On behalf of the entire Board of Directors of Water for Sudan in Rochester NY, we appreciate and are humbled by your efforts to help people less fortunate than we are. Your significant contributions have helped thousands of people draw clean water from the newest country in the world, South Sudan. You have helped eliminate water borne diseases, allowed young girls time to go to school (Normally they would walk hours a day to bring back polluted water to their families), made possible the beginnings of commerce and a better health care system. Again, thank you for all you have done! The world is a better place with you in it. John Bevier – WFS/BOD Member
