As we recently celebrated Mother’s Day in our community, Dave Harding & 10 members of the Duke Football program were bringing life-giving water to mothers in Africa by digging two wells in the rural area surrounding Awassa, Ethiopia.
So we wanted to celebrate this Father’s Day in a way we would be proud of. We invited Dave to come share with us. So Dave Harding, a starting offensive lineman for the Duke football team, will join us to play football with our kids and share stories, pictures, and videos from his experience with Water is Life International in Ethiopia. We will meet together on June 17 at Morrisville Community Park, 3:00-5:00
Dave will share with us about the letters/pictures kids from our community sent with him for children in Ethiopia. There will be time for children to ask him questions about the trip. For those interested, we will make a collective financial contribution to Water is Life to be given towards the digging of a well (Total coast of one well = $5,000-8,000).
