It’s a sad but true fact that 783 million people around the world still do not have access to clean water. Over 2.5 million people still do not have proper access to adequate sanitation facilities. This sad lack of such basic human needs is a tragedy that people around the world are seeking to redress.
This is one of the reasons why the United Nations has set up World Water Day. A day where people can focus on the many ways ordinary people can get involved in helping people reclaim some dignity, and improve their long-term health through access to clean and safe water.
World Water Day tries to remind people about the significance of fresh water. To promote sustainability for fresh water resources’ management.
It’s a day to celebrate water. It’s a day to prepare for how we manage water in the future.
This year’s theme is ‘Leaving no one behind’.
Water is such a precious commodity that many take for granted. World Water Day is a chance to think about those people and places where water needs are still paramount, and seek to work together to find a solution.
