Solve water crises – Efforts by Earth’s saviors

Water shortage is an impaling menace for the entire world, especially for the third world countries who cannot afford to go for expensive means to get their citizens even a meagre amount of safe water for human consumption. Therefore many-an-agencies, often nations collaborate to fight this evil assuring the people earn their very basic resource for living. And therefore the three most influential efforts made against water crisis are showcased under, serving not only the human rights but setting high standards for human dignity as well:

solve water crises


UNICEF: The savior in Palestine

The Palestinian state Gaza had been facing the water crisis for a length of period. Common poor people had to pour in bucks to ask for this basic amenity with a terribly compromised quality. Surveys have found out, that more than 90 percent of the water collected from the only aquifer in the area, is far from safe for humans to consume.

Desalination Plant in Gaza

The condition didn’t improve a bit until in 2013 UNICEF with the collaboration of the European Union launched the construction of a monstrous water plant that will desalinate the seawater providing 75,000 Palestinians access to healthy and fresh drinking water. Gaza’s already benefited with 18 small plants, most of which are supplied by UNICEF. With the help of the Government of Japan, UNICEF has established three brackish water desalination plants with a capacity reliable enough providing healthy drinking water to a mass of approximately 95,000 people.


Nations solve water crises in Maldives

On December 2014, after a fire broke out at a desalination plant of the Maldives Water and Sewerage Company (MWSC), Maldives went on without tap water for six days making 120,000 city-dwellers buy bottled water for mere daily chores, the cost of living taking an unprecedented leap.

The situation could not be fixed until India, China, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Saudi Arabia and Japan came to help the Maldives by sending crates of bottled water and the United States assuring to send technical experts to solve water crises.


Help from Chinese Embassy to Senegal

A damage in the water pipeline caused Dakar, the Senegalese capital to go on thirsting for two weeks until an upheaval took place accusing the Government for its inability.

By this time appeals were already made by the administration to France and China to help along. Senegalese engineers tried many-a-times to fix this up, ending up ironically as a sheer failure each time. Local efforts were also made by commoners digging up wells, though the quality of the water did not acknowledge the pain. But the ‘silver lining’ wasn’t that far away.

The help from Chinese Embassy to Senegal, CWE (Senegal) came forth with water tankers appeasing the local rebellion, and providing the Government with a comfortable position to try some newer means towards a more sustainable solution.

    With more and more of us on this rock each day, our diminishing water resources’ are being stretched even further.
    The worsening effects of climate change make the problem larger than is really evident.
    Whilst we must leave the question of supply in the hands of our political masters, each of us must do our best to contain our usage.
    Government must also help with the question of demand, as shown in this cartoon . . . .
