A doctor had visited our village last week and had told us that Amina had the first signs of a life-threatening disease. He informed us that the water we drank was definitely the cause and we should stop drinking that water immediately. When he said this, I remembered my daily trips to the stream a half mile away from our house. Every morning, I’d walk along the dusty path to the stream with my best friend Abdullah and a few other village boys. I remembered looking down into the murky brown stream waters and wishing we had cleaner water. I didn’t want to go home and give my siblings this dirty water to drink. I knew it would be bad for their health. But we didn’t have any other water. I knew that many village children had died because of drinking this water, but there was no other water to drink.
Thinking of all this, I bent down and kissed Amina’s forehead. I made du’a to Allah to save my little sister. I thought of all the people around the world who had so much water that they took for granted. My friend Abdullah told me so many stories his grandfather told him about people around the world who get endless supplies of fresh, clean water.
As I thought about this, I felt upset with those people who took all they had for granted. I wondered if they ever thought about us. I thought, ‘Do people know that we don’t have clean water to drink here in Somalia?’ Do they know that children and babies are dying every day because they don’t have clean water to drink? Do they even care to know?’

Even though every day is Earth Day, everyone should be extra kind to the Earth today.
One way to be kind to the Earth is to donate to our Well Project Team so we can build more water wells in Africa.
You can also consider playing outside all day instead of staying inside playing in the computer. Today is Sunday.
Extra Special Update on Earth Day!
During a trip to Syracuse (in upstate New York), where all my siblings and I were born, we got $200 for our 7th Well. Thank You Khalu!!

"Mama, I want food,” said an African boy named Muhammad who could barely talk because of his hunger.
"We don't have food, "said Muhammad's mom.
"But...,"said Muhammad who was interrupted by his dad.
"Guess what, some kids raised enough money to make a well!"said his dad.
"Who gave it?" said Muhammad's mom who was surprised.
"A group of youth in Delaware, USA decided to raise money to make wells in Africa and they raised 5 wells so far and one is built in our village and another is being built somewhere else. The another ones are not built yet!"said Muhammad’s dad.
"I am going to help make it!" he said as he ran out of their tent.
"Muhammad, we can get clean water in a few days!" said Muhammad's mom.
Two weeks later.........................................................
“I can't wait to drink clean water!"said people who were in line to get water for their families and themselves.
There was Muhammad waiting in line jumping to get clean water. He was so excited he didn't even notice that he almost fell down.
Muhammad is not a real person, but lots of other kids like Muhammad live in Africa. Please help these kids by donating!

The experience was also fun. The weather wasn't hot. Instead, there was a nice cool breeze that occasionally (more like every two minutes!) blew our flyers and posters into the street. But we learned an important lesson: Always bring duct tape to events of this sort!
We also enjoyed talking with our friends and eating candy on the beautiful, cool April day. Taking advantage of this outdoors opportunity, and knowing that we are also part of the Green Deen Team earth club, we picked up some litter that we found on the sidewalk and street. There were still lots more trash, however, and we wondered why people littered our environment so much.
Check out pictures of our adventure below.
Jazak Allahu Khairan everyone who helped out!
We should help Africa because for these reasons...
First, they are dying from thirst and hunger
Second of all, its hot there
Third, there home is not strong
Last but not least, the don't got hardly money or even none!
That why we should help Africa
