How Important is Water Supply in a Community?


Have you ever imagined how life would be without water? Will you survive a day without drinking water? Could you live without taking a bath?
Water has always been a part of our lives. It is something we need and readily get every day. But do you know that there are still communities around the world which do not have permanent sources of water? Are you aware that some of these communities wait for weeks or months for meager amounts of rations?
This is the reason why (NDCA) NSU Development & Cultural Association- North America aims to provide water for these communities which do not have sufficient sources of water supply.

  • Our body needs water.

    A human’s body weight is composed of approximately 60% of water. We need water to be alive because:

  • It protects our joints, spinal cord, and tissues by maintaining moisture in these sensitive areas, and acting as lubricants and cushion for the joints.
  • It aids in removing waste in our body through playing an important role in urination, defecation, and perspiration.
  • It keeps our body from being dehydrated, especially when engaging in vigorous exercise, sweating during hot season and when we become sick.

    Although some people survive by drinking only whenever they get thirsty, we should keep our body hydrated as much as possible. Our body needs water to perform its functions. Hence, a community without permanent and sufficient water supply would be susceptible to various health risks.

  • Water is necessary for good hygiene and sanitation.

    According to the website of UNICEF, 2.1 billion people lack access to safe water. ( Every household needs safe and clean water to maintain cleanliness inside the house and for good hygiene practices.
    We need water to clean our toilets, in taking a bath and in washing our clothes. Safe water is necessary for brushing our teeth and in washing up. If a household does not have access to clean and safe water, how can these, basic sanitation and hygiene practices, be accomplished?

  • Let us help communities and provide them with permanent sources of water.

    We might not be able to fully comprehend how to live without water because we have not seen how some communities desperately beg for it. But we can do something to alleviate their suffering.
    In communities which lack a permanent supply of safe water, NDCA looks for two possible water sources near their area and these sources may include:

  • Ground water, or those obtained by drilling wells.
  • Surface water, or those which may be collected on the ground or in other bodies of water like rivers, lakes, and streams.

Be the hero of these communities. Share your ideas, finances, and experience. Be with us in providing these communities access to permanent water supply.
