The importance of water

Clean, safe water is scarce. Nearly 1 billion people in the developing world don’t have the access to it. Yet, most of us take it for granted and we waste it only because we are unaware of its scarcity. Water scarcity is experienced either because of the lack of sufficient water or lack of access to safe water. The importance of water is of great concern for our present and future survival.

The problem of water scarcity is an alarming growing problem. As more people put ever-increasing demands on limited supplies, the cost and effort to build or even maintain access to water will therefore increase.

Water is the foundation of life from birth throughout our living existence. Without water, we are doomed to economic and physical hardship. Ultimately, extinction.

To raise awareness among the general public about the global clean water crisis, the artist Belo created an image composed of 66,000 cups of coloured rainwater. Simulating levels of impurities found in water all over the planet. This major work of 3,600 square feet, representing a foetus in the maternal womb, emphasizes the necessity of water, even before birth for each living person.

There are several programs that are endeavouring to help resolve this acute water problem. One such programme is ‘I thirst water program’ who provide water filters and sanitation training to third- world impoverished countries. This programme provides water filters and water tank systems that supply ongoing clean water to families and communities.
