Why Water

Nobody chooses where to be born. We’re lucky enough to be born in a country where nobody has to worry about not having access to clean water or a toilet. But in many developing countries children are born into a completely different world. Mostly women and children have to walk for many hours each day to collect water for their families. The problem is that the water they collect is contaminated and carries diseases such as diarrhoea, cholera, dysentery, typhoid and polio. Diseases that will kill them but what choice do they have?
