After the completion of the Holy month of Ramadan, as we revert back to our usual working routines, the summer begins to really kick in as we try our best to keep ourselves and our children hydrated.
Out go the soups and teas (for some, anyway) along with the knitted jumpers and warm coats and instead, we welcome flip-flops, lighter attire, ice cold drinks and lollies!
One of the most refreshing things during this kind of heat is a nice, cold glass of water to start the morning with, and perhaps even a cold shower (or two!).
Charity Water Projects
However, these are, inevitably, the things we take for granted in life when we consider the lack of water resources that many millions of people across the world are facing on a daily basis. In some of these communities, water is so scarce that civilians are having to walk miles and miles in the burning heat each and every day to collect unsafe water just to survive.
It doesn’t have to be this way, though, as the majority of us are in a position to help those less fortunate than us. You may be surprised at how little you need to contribute towards making such a crucial difference to someone in need. The human body contains a higher percentage of water, as opposed to anything else, so it is imperative to hydrate in order to survive. Not only this, but water is also crucial for hygiene and sanitation purposes – another thing we take for granted.
