In developed countries, water flows like magic, on demand, clean and reliable. When we say “I have no water…”, well that’s a busted pipe or an issue with the utility company and the water is just not flowing as we expect.
In many parts of the world, like rural Ethiopia, the search for water is all consuming. It does not flow from faucets but rather must be hauled with manual labor. The source is wherever nature provides and its availability varies with the seasons. The water is most often dirty and contaminated with pathogens. It’s not just the humans that need water but the animals and crops need it too. Whatever the source, it is shared for both life and, unfortunately, death.
Water borne diseases kill many in Ethiopia. Children are especially vulnerable . In developed countries, that reality is unacceptable. Water is Life cannot change the entire world, but we can make a difference in Ethiopia.
