What is World Water Day?
Sustainable Development Goal 6 is crystal clear: water for all by 2030. By definition, this means leaving no one behind. But today, billions of people are still living without safe water – their households, schools, workplaces, farms and factories struggling to survive and thrive.
Marginalized groups – women, children, refugees, indigenous peoples, disabled people and many others – are often overlooked, and sometimes face discrimination, as they try to access and manage the safe water they need.
This World Water Day, 22nd March, is about tackling the water crisis by addressing the reasons why so many people are being left behind.
World Water Day 2019 Community Activity
This World Water Day, 22nd March and Living Green Cameroon and community team took the fight further by organizing a community outreach campaign to raising awareness of hand washing with soap as a key factor in disease prevention and highlights ways to conserve water when washing hands. The aim of the campaign is to show how access to clean water is critical in promoting hand washing with soap for a healthy lifestyle. Leaving no one behind.
Hand washing is one of the most important steps we can take to avoid getting sick and spreading germs to others. Many germs that can make people sick are spread by not washing hands with soap and clean, running water. Hand washing is especially important during key times, such as after using the bathroom or before preparing food.
