The Need for Water

In the Northern Region in Ghana, which is very dry for most of the year, fresh water supplies can be very far from villages.  In most cases, women and children must do the work of carrying water from sources to their homes.  This task can interfer with a child's time spent in school.

Many water sources are contaminated with Guinea worm and other parasites, bacteria and viruses.
