Water in Ethiopia for my little girl

Reblogged from Nataša Pantović Nuit:
Conscious Parenting - Nataša Pantović Nuit

I said to my little girl who just came from Ethiopia - '...and do you remember, when you were 3 and living in Ethiopia, how did you bath?

We did not bath, she told me, playing with water, I don't remember having a shower - we went into the woods to have one...'

Hearing these words, from the lips of my beautiful little girl, some statistics suddenly hit me:

  • 884 million people do not have an access to safe and clean water
  • 3.6 million people die every year from water-related diseases
  • 84% of deaths are in children
