Would you drink the water in this picture? Even if you were really thirsty? 4. Is it fair that globally an average of 40 billion hours a year is wasted fetching water? Self Help Africa doesnt think so and is working hard to give rural families access to that vital necessity that so many of us take for granted 5.
