A Privilege (and wait ‘til you see these amazing pics!)

Throughout 2012, GMB had the privilege of collaborating with Holland-based Vox United, an exceptional and inspiring organization working to educate and bring clean drinking water to sub-Saharan Africa. Vox is Latin for “voice,” and Vox United seeks to fulfill the Biblical mandate of Proverbs 31:8, “Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves; ensure justice for those who are perishing.”

Involvement has been focused on both the developing of new wells and the rehabilitation of existing wells. With the help of affiliate organizations and local government, non-functioning wells are surveyed and specked for restoration. Repair expeditions are mapped out and VOX mechanics travel into Africa’s bush to provide the fixes that bring real-time hope to thousands of people. Incredibly, sometimes it only takes minutes to repair a well that hasn’t worked for years. The impact is immeasurable, as seen in the faces of these great pictures by National Geographic photographer Patrick Kelley, who traveled with the Vox team on their most recent trip. GMB is honored to be associated with such an incredible organization. Thank you to Vox for the opportunity to serve alongside you in 2012! Looking forward to 2013!
