Water is a precious and important natural resource and one of Scotland’s most natural resources the uses of water are many, from drinking and dining, cleaning, nourishing crops and landscapes, cooling, recreation and industrial processes. To boot the sound of running water and the ebb and flow of the ocean or river provides great auditory and aesthetic pleasure.
Essentially water is a part of almost everything humans are, make and do. Yet somehow we take it for granted. From personal experience here in Glasgow we moan at the odd contamination in the supply. Yet take for granted water being delivered to our homes and the compensation check… more than 884 million of the world’s people still rely on drinking water sources that are unsafe!
There is a great way to help the poor by supporting the UN’s life-saving work to improve water and sanitation for billions. Join people from around the world NOW to help eradicate this problem. All it takes is a few moments of your time! Simply sign the petition in support of UN’s work to supply clean, safe drinking water to the world’s poorest.
By signing the petition to help the poor you will be urging UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to continue the UN’s work to bring water and sanitation to the developing nations. Now that is something NEW that you can do with water!
