It has been calculated that in South Africa alone that women collectively walk 16 times the distance from the moon and back per day gathering water for families
WOMEN SUFFER JUST TO PROVIDE THE BASIC ESSENTIALS
In some regions, women spend up to 5 hours a day collecting fuel, wood and water and up to 4 hours preparing food. The economic value of this unpaid contribution is enormous: in India, it is estimated that women fetching water spend 150 million work days per year, equivalent to a national loss of income of approximately $200 Million
UNSAFE WATER KILLS MORE THAN ANY COMBINATION OF DISEASE OR WAR
