Those UNICEF Christmas Cards

Remember a decade or two ago when everyone was buying those UNICEF Christmas cards? 

Well, last week Francie and I were on a two day hike through Myanmar and I was really impressed by UNICEF’s work.  In 1988 UNICEF apparently went through a large amount of the Myanmar country and built water systems for villages that brought purified water to the doorstep.  These water systems are still working today and the purified water is incredible considering that the city’s water supply is polluted and everyone has to drink from water bottles.   

I guess all that money for UNICEF Christmas cards was well spent…now someone just needs to fix this hose.
