Water is a basic necessity for life, unfortunately, in 2021 many people spend their entire day searching for clean drinking water and in some cases are unsuccessful and have to use contaminated water sources.
In the third world people spend a huge amount of time on a daily basis searching and collecting water, in some cases the water is contaminated, and most of the time women and children spend hours in a day to collect water.
