World Water Day: March 22, 2013

Every day 4,000 children die from illnesses like diarrhea, dysentery, and cholera caused by dirty water and unhygienic living conditions. In 1993 the United Nations declared March 22nd as World Water Day to highlight the importance of freshwater and to advocate for the sustainable management of freshwater resources.
