Water Matters

  1. 1. What is so significant about water?
  2. 2. Think about how you use water...
  3. 3. Water is essential for life! Dehydration is a slow and painful death… To stop our bodies from dehydrating we need 2-5lts of H2O per day…. But not everyone has access to this, so many people are dying from a lack of water.
  4. 4. Water is essential for being healthy… Water can carry many diseases, for example Malaria. So it is not just about having access to water, it is about having access to safe water and preferably, drinking water.
  5. 5. Water is essential for being healthy… The cleaner the water you drink, the less likely you will get sick. If you get sick, then you become a burden to you family. Medical bills need to paid for and someone has to look after you. People may have to take time off work.
  6. 6. Water is essential for industry… In industrialised countries, water is used in factories, construction and much more. If the factories had no water, they would not be able to operate and then there would be no jobs.
  7. 7. Water is essential for agriculture… Farmers need water to water their livestock and crops. Without water there would be no food grown and this could lead to a famine. This is the case in many African countries.
