Today is World Water Day. It’s an important day established by the United Nations to identify world-wide water issues. A day to draw attention to the facts. 783 million people, or 11% of the world’s population, do not have safe water to drink and this, in addition to poor sanitation, results in the death of 2,000 children every day.
