This post was written by Andrea Ginsberg, former project manager for the Clorox Safe Water project.

Last month, my colleague Alexis and I spent a day in each of the four rural communities using Clorox® bleach to disinfect their drinking water. It was an experience I will never forget.

At the start of our first day, we gathered with the women of one community as they collected water from the public tank for their families. We stood under an aluminum roof — a thin shield we installed to protect against the blazing sun — and learned just how difficult it is for the people in these villages to access a fundamental necessity.
