World Water Day

Imagine hauling your own water; the only well, miles away from your house. Imagine carrying it back home on your head over dusty tracks, no shade anywhere. It may not be sweet or refreshing having traveled the journey in an old container in the sun but it will still support life… And then, one day arriving at the well, you find it is dry…then what?

Hauling Water

 “World Water Day has been observed on 22 March since 1993 when the UN declared 22 March as World Day for Water and has grown significantly ever since; for people to show support, it is encouraged to not use taps throughout the whole day.”
