Ethiopia Water Collection Video

Check out this amazing video from water.org: http://www.youtube.com/water#p/u/4/DhRP-zx-EBU

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? ┬áThat’s an amazing distance, and it’s the average! ┬áThat 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!
