Water plays such a huge part in everyone’s life; cooking and drinking, showering, washing clothes, and nurturing plants, to name but a few. We need water to grow crops so we can eat. Water is essential in our rivers and oceans to keep our world balanced. There are many ways to write about the impact of water in our lives, but today I’ve chosen an aspect I feel strongly about.
Having clean water on tap is something we take for granted. It’s always there, always available and we can drink it to our heart’s content. But not everyone is so lucky . . .
When I watch the adverts on TV for charities like Water Aid and see young children from under-developed countries scooping dirty water from puddles and drinking it, I get a lump in my throat.
No child, anywhere in the world, should have to drink filthy, disease-ridden water, especially in the twenty-first century.
If every one of us donated just ONE dollar/pound, how many lives would we save?
