When summer rolls around, we sometimes begin to dream of holidays, relaxing in the sunshine and keeping cool. From ice-cream and refreshing drinks, to days out and summer fun with the kids, the warmer months of the year are a time of excitement, fun and games.
But across the world, many thousands of people struggle to survive in this same summer heat – mainly due to a lack of clean, safe drinking water and poor sanitation. For these people, the devastating effects of water-related diseases are just another part of miserable life.
For vulnerable people, daily life is a constant struggle – a far cry from the fun and games many of us associate with the long, hot days that summer brings.
The Importance of Water
It can be easy to overlook the vital importance that water holds in our lives. The human body is approximately 60% water, but besides needing water to drink, we also need this essential resource for washing, cooking and sanitation. We simply cannot survive without water.
So, this summer, join us as we commit to changing the world for the better and ensure that as many people as possible will receive ready access to clean water.
Water Across the World
Although water is a plentiful resource here in our own country and communities, there are many people across the world who simply do not have this essential right. To these people, water is a precious resource and a commodity that cannot be wasted – that is why so many people struggle to get the water they need to survive.
Due to the lack of systems, proper sanitation and infrastructure, many people are left relying upon unsafe, dirty water for their daily needs. This can lead to an increase in the risk of contracting dangerous water-related diseases, yet these people have absolutely no alternative but to drink this unclean water.
