Quebec lend their feet to the campaign too!

Marie-Anne Champoux-Guimond from ONE DROP writes here about the event her organisation is planning for the World Walks for Water, in coordination with Oxfam-Québec.

On the eve of World Water Day on March 22, ONE DROP and Oxfam-Québec will host a very unique World Walks for Water event on March 19th, at Montreal’s Eaton Center, as part of the global campaign led by End Water Poverty. Shoppers and passers-by will experiment, through a fun theatrical mise en scene, what a day without water feels like, and how the lack of access to that vital resource impacts multiple dimensions of our daily life. Each participant will add a few steps to a collective walk, in a demonstration of solidarity with almost one billion people who, in the developing world, walk long hours everyday to fetch water.

Join us for that special World Water Day event! You can find more details on the ONE DROP website.

Luapula province is one the province in Zambia with a large percent of water sources but is one of the poorest country on access to safe and sustainable water. where is the problem? The government has not taken provision of water as political issue and we need change and ensure government recognise that access to water is a basic human rights and it needs a political will to effect change and save lives of main.
