This morning, I have two hrs discussion on the formulation of Water Leaders Charter for the Developing countries with my MWA President and a few council members. IMHO, water is just like indepencence. Once it is there, you almost take it for granted. A lot of efforts stilll need to be done to ensure our granchildren will have access to water in the next 50 years.

Hello,I am Adib Noh from Malaysia. Btw, I am a 49 years old water engineer
and a council member of Malaysian Water Association.I read the article about
your work in Reader's Digest and I am very impressed by what you had
done.Congratulations Ryan!
During the last council meeting,I showed your picture and the well in Africa
to my fellow coucil members about your good deeds.Also I told my friends
that we adults should learn something from what this young man had done.

May I quote from the Economist:
"Water is the most expensive commodity when you don't have it."

and a wise man had said:

We only know the value of water when our wells run dry.

Best regards,
