World Water Day
World Water Day is not just an annual event, rather it is a day that gives us a real picture about the significance of the clean water that helps us to lead a life with hygiene and sanitation. It is an international observance day. Most importantly, the day is observed to educate people who still do not understand the immeasurable value of water. As per a current research, a good number of people still do not get the clean water for their daily use.
They are living in a situation where malaria, cholera, dengue, blinding trachoma are expected to happen any time. Additionally, malnutrition is the most common and noticeable health issue that hampers the growth of our next generation. Therefore, getting access to the clean water is essential and for that, we must take proper initiatives and hold each other’s hand firmly.
22 March is the World Water Day, a time to take action to save water and prepare a clean space for the kids, so that they can develop in a healthy manner. However, this day was marked by the United Nations General Assembly in 1993 and since then, it has been observing by focusing on different issues.
In the rural areas, people struggle a lot to continue the process of firming and women cover a long distance to collect the clean water for drinking. However, keeping these aspects in mind, we must keep a firm step to handle the water crisis, a prevalent issue at the present time.
‘Why waste water?’ is the theme of the World Water Day, 2017. To get the right answer of this question, we must find the reasons, for that, our country faces the challenge to provide water security to the growing population. As per a current report, more than one-sixth of groundwater supply in India is overused and it results drought in many places. Finally, that leads to vicious poverty and hunger. However, this is the high time to join hands for a sustainable development that ensures the access to clean water to all.
