To the world leaders
As a citizen of the World, I am writing to express my concern on the plight of various communities across the globe living without clean drinking water. You will agree with me that lack of clean drinking water promotes disease, stifles education and economic growth, and more often than not, results in the majority of infant mortality. Ideally, providing clean drinking water to poverty stricken community will ease or eliminate the health crisis caused by lack of clean portable water in many communities in the world. For this reason, I kindly urge the rich nations of the world to work jointly with other less resourceful nations to ensure that lack of clean drinking water is a thing of the past. Water is life, water is wealth, water is power, given water to poverty stricken communities means new life, new hope, and new beginning.
I have no doubt that you will agree with me that by helping to provide clean drinking water to less resourceful communities in the world, you will have displayed genuine and patriotic service, and of course, an enduring legacy for humanity. When you think of fighting hunger, you may think only of emergency relief and food. When you think of healing diseases, you may think of doctors and nurses. Water actually stops hunger, heals diseases and saves precious lives even long after a humanitarian relief effort has ended and temporary medical teams have gone, water continues to heal. It is truly a life saving solution.
Based on my personal assessment, I understand that the task of providing drinking water is monumental, but it is worthwhile. The only source of drinkable water in some communities in the world is the village ponds, construction companies abandoned pits and untreated rural stream water. They have no water to defend themselves against the degradation, inhumanity and odium that assaults one’s dignity and mental stability when assaulted by the vicissitudes and travails that bedevils one and his family in the absence of water for the preservation of life.
What can we do without water? Let’s make the world a better place for all.
I thank you for your support and consideration of this request, and I look forward to working with you to enhance development, because I believe nothing can change a community and the world in general like providing a source of clean water for the first time. It creates a complete transformation. It has the power to actually stop the cycle of poverty. Given clean water to poverty stricken community is like resuscitating a dying man. Water means new potential, new hope, for a better tomorrow.
