How Two Sisters are Using Origami to Raise Money for Water Wells
NAHC President Val J. Halamandaris Commends Isabelle and Katherine Adams for Helping People Stay in Their Homes by Providing Access to Water
For nearly four years, Isabelle and Katherine Adams have been folding origami in order help bring clean water to people around the world. Their project, called Paper for Water, raises money for wells across the world through donations they receive for their origami Christmas ornaments and decorations.
Val J. Halamandaris, the President of the National Association for Home Care & Hospice, sat down with Isabelle, 11, and Katherine, 9, last week to discuss Paper for Water. The Caring Institute, an affiliate of NAHC, in 2013 awarded the sisters the Caring Youth Award for their efforts.
One of NAHC’s guiding principles is to support people in their homes. Halamandaris commended the sisters for, in their own way, helping people stay in their homes by providing access to water, which is one essential thing that everyone needs.
