Incredible! 35 miles to find water, and can only carry a certain amount on their backs. WE cannot forget these people. I'm grateful for the clean water I get to drink, and through Care2Causes, I donate all my points for clean drinking water for a 3rd world country. But its so little, and I want to do more. WE have to find water for these people.
Alot of people say they should move, well alot os people say those who live in California should move cuz of the earth quakes or those who live in places prone to tornado attacks. It's not as simple as that but instead of judging we should have open hearts to their situations. Even in our economy we still live better then their best day. I don't know about you but I only have to walk to my kitchen for fresh water.
The sad thing is here in America we would fight hard for animal rights and animal protection yet turn a very cold and philosophical heart.i bet if there were diamonds or oil or Ivory in their region all arms would be extended instead backs are turned and suggestions made to simply "move".A simple answer from a simple mind.
it,s 2012 if we can put a man on the moon,spend billions killing people with the latest technology in iraq an afghaniistan on wars ,why cant we get people water its 2012 for fucksake get it sorted
why don't they just move! It seems pretty dumb to me to settle so far away from the source and supply.
I truly beleive, there is ENOUPH, plastic in the world, to manufacture a million plastic pipes, and then some.
If, these peaple CAN walk 35+ miles to find water, surely, they can move, too. Question is, why don't they STAY, where the water is? While there, send out 8 men, 2 per direction, north, south, east, west, till they find MORE water? Biuld a creek, to the village. OR, make PVC pipe water way from water-site to village?
Money, is usually they only thing, that stops most peaple , from solveing problems. Lower prices, problems get solved.
There IS a solution to almost every problem. Peaple/humans need to work TOGETHER , to find solutions. It CAN be done.
