The women and girls of Chitundo, Malawi, walked for miles for dirty water. And when the original stream dried up, they had to walk even further. As Karen pumped the first water from the new well, she was surrounded by women making clicking noises, their form of applause. The new well was so important to the women in this village.
Traveling throughout the world to help others did not prove to be dangerous until visiting Guinea. There a motor cycle accident stressed the need for clean, accessible water to wash the blood and dirt from her wounds. In Drilling for Hope: One Woman's Work to Provide Clean Water, Karen survives the accident with scars to show for it yet continues on to Tanzania to drill more wells.
