World Water Day

Can you imagine not having running water every time you go to brush your teeth or to refill your water bottle?
Sadly, that is the case for 783 million people around the world that do not have access to clean water.
 And that is a lot of people!

 What if you had to walk miles every day just to fill a bucket for water to drink that day? 
Women and girls can spend up to 25% of their time each day  going out and collecting water to share with their families. 
Something as simple as washing your hands, to help prevent you from getting sick, is difficult in some countries, since the people do not have clean water.  And it isn’t just ourselves we wash…we wash our fruits and vegetables too.
 And who else needs clean drinking water?
Not only our pets, but the cows, chickens and pigs that we raise for food.  If they don’t have clean drinking water, how healthy are they?
Cows and other animals drink A LOT of water.
  There is a great need around the world to have access to safe and clean drinking water, so we can all lead healthy lives
This year WWD will focus on the power that water and jobs have to transform people’s lives. 
Nearly all jobs are related to water.
