As an adult, teachers no longer offer me a chance to carry a tiny orange box around while wearing a clown costume. Instead, I get most of my information on the Web and try to make informed decisions about how I'll contribute to this world. Oh, doesn't thinking sound complicated? It's a good thing I learn things on YouTube sometimes.
Today I came across a new video on Unicef Canada's YouTube channel. In it, Lenny Kravitz speaks in support of UNICEF and of the importance of clean drinking water and sanitation. He mentions that 4,000 children die every day because of unsafe drinking water, unsanitary and unhygienic conditions.
Among its many children's advocacy and charitable efforts, UNICEF, along with governments and partners has helped drill wells, install water pumps and build latrines. Improved water conditions have helped over 2 billion people and improved sanition has helped over 1.8 billion people. UNICEF has educated children and mothers about hygiene, and has provided many people sanitation and clean water in emergency situations. However, many people are left without access to clean water and proper sanitation. The good news is that we can help through UNICEF. For more information, visit unicef.ca.
