For all of us that live in first world countries it is easy to forget just how fortunate we are. CLICK HERE FOR VIDEO
We are so privileged to be able to turn on a tap and drink the fresh, clean water that pours out. In many countries around the world ordinary people don’t have the same access to clean water that we do.
In Kenya a child has a one in five chance of dying before they reach the age of 5 and unsafe drinking water is one of the main causes of this.
To end this struggle that many people face, the clean-water organisation “Water is life” created a heart-warming campaign to raise awareness.
They created a short film in which they take a 4 year old African boy called Nkaitole on a journey to fulfil his bucket list of all the things he’s ever wanted to do in life. “I’m going on an adventure,” he says of his first trip outside of his village. “Traveling across Kenya … doing all the things I’ve always wanted to do.”
As Nkaitole ticks of his wish list such as flying in an aeroplane, beating Kenya’s Fastest man and seeing the ocean for the first time we are able to really understand how serious the water issue is, as for Nkaitole there is a chance he won’t make it past his fifth birthday.
So next time you turn on the tap, make sure you use the water wisely as there are many children that would love the same opportunity to drink clean safe water.
