Ran into Esther today, who I first met in Kenya 3 years ago when Operation Blessing drilled a well in her village. The photo of her carrying a bucket of water on her backed using a strap on her head has been used to show the benefits of PackH2O water backpacks in USA Today newspapers and for media associated their Smithsonian Cooper-Hewitt people’s choice award for design. 

 

 I was able to give her a new PackH2O backpack today and tell her how she has helped people all over the world who have the burden of carrying water long distances. Notice the difference in posture as she supports the water with her shoulders and back instead of her head and neck.
