Sometime earlier i had made mention of drinking water being a huge problem especially in the north of Ghana. Many women and children spend hours walking or cycling to collect water. The yellow cans are a constant reminder of people looking for drinking water.

This year we have been blessed with some good early rains, however, it has not eased the distress of people who constantly have to go out in search of water as is the case of this boy on the cycle. And there are many more like him...

As we turn on our taps today... wash our car ... water the manicured lawns ... luxuriate in baths... and stand under showers ... spare a thought for those who daily struggle to gather water just to survive.
