Water Wednesday: Clean Water Not Easy to Get or Accessible to All

By | March 14, 2018

At the very minimum, every week on #WaterWednesday we should all take a few minutes (or more) to think about the struggles of women and children around the world as they work diligently to locate safe, clean drinking water for their families.  For many people getting water for even the most basic daily purposes requires long and often dangerous journeys that may take the entire day (or more!) to complete… just to do it all over, again, the next day and every day after that.

So the next time you go to the faucet or water fountain for a cold drink of water or pull a chilly bottle of refrigerated, purified water out of the fridge, pause for a second to reflect on how LUCKY and FORTUNATE your life has turned out regarding your convenient access to safe sources of drinking water.

Not sure about the safety of your water source?
