March 22, 2013 is World Water Day. It's a day to examine water issues worldwide and to see what can be done to bring about change. This day was established by the United Nations and it helps to bring awareness to the fact that so many people worldwide do not have access to safe drinking water and proper sanitation. In fact, roughly 783 million people are affected worldwide. This creates not only many hardships as you can imagine for those affected, but also brings disease and death. 2,000 children die every day as a result of this lack of access to clean drinking water and proper sanitation. On World Water Day March 22, 2013, we can come together to start working on solutions for change to turn these statistics around.
