How far would you go to get water?

Follow one teen as she collects water in Ethiopia

Filling Jug with Tap Water

In Canada, most of us drink water without thinking, but what is it like for people who don’t have that luxury?


It takes Aysha, 13, eight hours to collect water every day, and it’s from a dirty, contaminated source.


At Christian Children’s Fund of Canada, we provide better access to water, which improves health, frees up time for parents to generate income and for children to go to school — and that’s just the beginning.

In the meantime, watch the UNICEF video below to understand what it’s like to walk in Aysha’s shoes for a day.
