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.

    1. Thanks so much! I’m committed to using my iPhone for this photo101 challenge and am playing around with its default filters. This was one of them and I thought it captured the intent very well. Glad you liked it!

  2. I had the same focus on relation to water! I love the cat!
