Ethiopia isn’t really our focus, but this is a tremendous example of the kind of burdens women endure to fetch water for their families.
Did you know that the average woman in a developing country will walk more than 5k to water every day? That’s an amazing distance, and it’s the average! That means that many families have to walk much, much farther.
Some days I won’t even drive 5k to go to the grocery store, I’ll just scrounge around for spaghettios or something instead!
