Reflexiones de Moises: Blog 8; Soap and Water

By May 5, 2015March 27th, 2023No Comments

Ah, the things we take for granted.  We have always had lots of soap around and in our culture (in the United States).  I guess it has always been kind of assumed that people should wash with soap.Ecuador March 2015 Blog 8a
But, what if you didn’t have any soap.  What if you didn’t have any water?  Well, it gets kind of complicated.  Agua Viva does not always recommend using soap and we never recommend washing with our pure clean ozonated drinking water.  Education sure is important.
On most trips, Agua Viva collects little soaps from motels and we make “courtesy bags”.  Inside each bag is a “soap”, a wash cloth, a package of dental floss, and an adult toothbrush (adult only, soft, of course).  With a little luck, on our next trip, we may have a children’s match box car… courtesy of our new friend Mr. Cole Tourney (six years old).  Ecuador March 2015 Blog 8bYou see, Cole just had his birthday party.  Instead of birthday presents for himself, he asked for match box cars for our courtesy bags.  Isn’t that amazing!!!  Thank you, Cole.
We are always looking for toothbrushes, dental floss, and soaps.  Bring’em to Jim Allen or your nearest Agua Viva representative !!!
