5 thoughts on “World Water Day: Celebrating Women’s Rights

  1. I'm sure we can't fully comprehend what it means to not have access to something as basic as water and to have to risk your life to get it. Maybe this will draw some attention and the support women need will increase.

  2. Can you imagine growing up in these conditions? When you were little you probably cried out cause your parents make you drink water and wouldn't give you the juice you wanted. These children grow up walking for miles every day to get a taste of clean water.

  3. But only when the U.S. government and every other government in the world recognizes its obligations to protect the human right to safe drinking water, sanitation and hygiene will its full benefits be felt.

  4. Lack of sanitation and safe drinking water violates the right to safe and adequate housing. Combined with poor hygiene, it makes people sick because they ingest fecal matter without even knowing it, creates breeding grounds for insects carrying diseases like trachoma, and contaminates water sources; water-borne illnesses impact children most, keeping more kids from school and causing trauma for the many parents whose children don’t survive these diseases, up to 2,000 each day.
