But there’s one local organization working on a solution.The annual Walk for Water Saturday offered Tuscaloosans a chance to help raise money for Healing Hands International, which helps provide water filters to those in third-world countries lacking clean water.“We’ll send these filters, and these filters will provide an entire family water for life,” said Healing Hands member Caleb McCurry.Every day, many families in third-world counties have to was as much as 4 miles for clean water. Walkers at the event put themselves in their shoes by walking that distance with 5-gallon cans.Since its inception, Healing Hands has drilled more than 1,000 wells and has impacted at least 90 percent of families who don’t have clean drinking water.last_img
