Another Dream - about walking for water

Third dream is about a journey after water.

More than 3 million children and nearly 14 million women in subsahar Africa walk more than 30 minutes to collect water to the nearest well: together those women and girls spend 200 million hours walking to bring fresh water for their families. That’s 8.3 million days. More than 22,800 years. It’s hard to get your head around numbers that large. I go rather to the kitchen to drink a glass of water from the crane.
