Housing, water and sanitation are human rights. Do you agree?

Can you imagine living without safe, clean water in your home? What impact would this have on your life?

I could not live without water, sadly hundreds of thousands of people don't know what fresh water is. Something has to be done. Without clean water, we would die, which does happen to those who are refused that right. Makes me angry to see people having their rights abused.

We live in mostly an agricutural land, where we see that lack of water make rural population move to urban areas more frequently now then ever before, just to earn their living....that becomes more burden on limited resources in big cities., and population related issues are becoming hard to manage for us already.

No, i will not dare to imagine if i have to live without water:(. Sometimes i felt like i have no guts to improve that the water source belong to the people, since i couldnt answer the question around " how to manage the source?". The water source becoming commercial, some managed by government, some sold to company who sell water. In rural areas, which most people comes from the poor family, its beyond their imagination that they have to pay the water as well as they have to pay the food they eat. Water are everywhere, but protected. If you wanna get a water with proper quality, you have to pay, if you couldnt afford it, just wait for the rain to come or find water near you.

What is truly remarkable about this good Earth is that there is life here - SO much life. The very substance that makes this possible is a certain chemical compound denoted as H2O. Every living thing is made of this magical stuff, and it thus becomes necessary for the existence of every beautiful life form on this planet - plants, animals, and humans alike. No living being should have to suffer from a denial of such a crucial substance for existence. No one should be forced to see the spread of disease to their loved ones as the result of unclean - sometimes deliberately tainted - water supplies. This seemingly simple stuff is like blue gold, but so many people take it for granted. Those who have it, waste it and ruin it, but hoard it as soon as someone in need comes along with an empty cup. Their really should be a greater push to conserve and purify what we have, and to SHARE it with those who are not as fortunate to have it readily accessible.

I cannot imagine this for it should not happen!!! As human beings, we are comprised of water, thus need water to live. All human beings are and deserve water. If for no other reason but logic! If water is polluted it is no longer water! We all deserve and need clean water... every human being. Every single Human Being. Why do people forget what it means to be a human being?!

There is no compromise regarding safe and clean water.Without this safe and clean water we will going to face a lot of troubles related with our health : lots of disease are cause by unclean and unsafe water.Life,our survival also always dependent on water. safe and clean water enables human-beings to be safe and healthy. When start think of life means same start thinking of water.
