    Billions around the world lack access to safe water at home and more than half of the world’s population lacks safely managed sanitation. As a result, water-borne diseases like diarrhea, cholera and dysentery, all potentially fatal conditions, are pervasive. In fact, hundreds of thousands of children die each year from water-borne diseases alone. Women in particular bear the brunt of the lack of availability to clean and safe water.

    I've had a few buttons off for a while so took the time to sew them back on. I have a sewing machine, but more than once have sewed a seam by hand. I don't mind doing that activity while I sit and watch T.V. I also just finished the project of putting velcro on some covers I made for cushions as the outer material wore away but the padding was still good. Cushions are now ready for the outdoor chairs!
