Water in Namibia


Whens the last time you had a glass of water? Maybe you had one two hours ago, or 3 minutes, or maybe your having one right now. We are so lucky to be in reach of such sanitary water, and we don't even think about how hard someone in Namibia works for theirs. Many people in Africa spend hours a day carrying more than 50 pounds of water on their backs not even having the cleanliness of the water to keep them healthy. We need to start thinking about how hard it is for a person just like us to get a glass of water, when we are allowed to refresh ourselves with not just water, but other delicious drinks. It is outrageous that about 300 million people in Africa don't have safe water to drink, when we are sipping our clean refreshing ice water without a sweat. The next time that you have a glass of water, make sure to think about how good you have it.

The effect of this water problem has many cons. Many of the people in Africa begin to not have good health, and it can also cause the poverty of the people in Africa.

Many scientists had found groundwater (specifically an aquifer) under the land of Africa. Scientist see this as a solution for Africa's unsanitary water and the scarcity amounts of it that fill Africa's land.
