Water

We take it for granted in America but for most of the world it’s a struggle to find water. In Kajo Keji, South Sudan some women walk five miles to fill a five gallon container with well water. According to www.UNwater.org, in 2013, 783 million people do not have access to clean water and 6 to 8 million people die annually from disasters and water-related diseases. So, the next time you pour that half-finished glass of water down the drain, think about the 85% of the world’s population living in the driest half of the planet.
