Global Water Crisis
One of the pressing global issue is the water crisis. The sad facts about the water crisis are in my poster above. Water is very important in everyday living. Just one day without water in my house affects all of our activities like cannot take a bath thus cannot go to school, cannot use the toilet because no water to use for flushing, cannot cook our food etc. As of now, 844 million people do not have access to safe water according to Water.org. The global bigger impacts of water problems are the loss of good opportunities, women crisis, health crisis, children and education crisis, and economic crisis.
Due to scarcity of clean water, the lost opportunities are education, work opportunities, and improved health for women, children and families across the world. These opportunities are lost because they will have to go and collect water instead of finding a job or go to school. Many fall sick as well which prevents taking any opportunity at hand.
The water crisis also affects women because they are the ones who have to go out and be responsible for collecting water. It takes away their opportunity to study, work and take care of their families because their time is used in collecting water.
The water crisis also affects the health. Every 90 seconds, a child dies from a water – related disease such as diarrhea according to Water.org.
The education of children is also affected. The children are the ones who usually help out at home and sometimes if their mother is busy, they are the ones who go and collect water. This takes away their time from school and play.
Lastly, a lot of money is wasted due to a lot of time being spent to collect water. This time could have been spent earning money to reduce poverty.
