Ruston resident makes a difference
Murphy is on a quest to raise $16,000 for World Vision in order to have a well built for a village in Africa. She said that many children in Africa forfeit school in order to travel for water.
“Carrying my backpack is a daily reminder to me of what some of the women and kids go through. Some of them walk eight hours a day just for dirty water. They don’t have any other option,” Murphy said. “It’s horrible what they go through. I just want to make a difference.”
