Why Water?

What if this was your boys? That’s what I thought looking at this. I have 2 boys and these kids don’t look much older than my oldest. I couldn’t image my son having to walk hours everyday to collect water…dirty water!

And that’s all they have to drink!!! I will confess, I don’t think I wouldn’t let my boys bathe in that water these boys are collecting to drink.

The statistics are overwhelming to say the least.

* 37,800 children under 5 years old DIE EVERY WEEK from preventable diseases contracted from unsafe water and unhygienic living conditions.

* Every year (in Africa) women and children spend 40 billion hours walking miles to the nearest water source like the one the kids are at in the picture – unprotected and likely to make them sick.

I saw this quote on a picture:

“Where you are born should not decide whether you have access to clean water.”
