In this episode, I am sharing my thought on safe drinking water for Kids & families. Since last year we have been watching lots of changes in the world not to be ignored the COVID-19 and one more important factor is the Climatic Changes. I have been going through the world news and came to know that Europe, Asia and other parts of the world got highly affected with the climatic disruptions which include flood, hurricane, drought and severe Air pollution. Every corner of the world is facing challenges due to climatic changes and it directly hit on kids health.
Due to these uncontrollable natural calamities, the most important element on earth which got affected is water. Water plays a very important role when it comes to living lives. A human being needs safe, unpolluted water to drink. In some of the African countries natural calamities are still a part of their daily life and due to that water gets contaminated every time and especially for school going children they are getting affected badly, stomach related infections developed and they are still carrying the pains. Pregnant mothers are finding it more challenging when it comes to safe water and since it directly affects the baby. Drinking unsafe water affecting the health of the baby and it may develop long term diseases.
There are also some of the places where Water tanks are yet to get through the proper cleaning and testing process and which leads the families and the children to have trouble in their bodies due to a bad indigestion system. The first thing which got affected is kids’ digestion system, because of constant consumption of unsafe water; they are finding themselves with lots of waterborne diseases.
I have been finding this extremely important when it comes to clean drinking water not only for the children also for the grownups. We have no control over where the water comes, (the main source) but we can assure ourselves to drink safe water at home by taking few necessary steps which are easy and simple. but the question is how do we need to assure the water is safe? the only way I find it is economical and reliable is to boil the water. Boiling water doesn’t mean using expensive equipment for boiling or cleaning which is available in the market, we need to simply boil it at home.
But the question that must be arising in everyone’s mind is Why do we need to boil? Why can’t we just warm the water and drink, let me tell you, boiling water kills all the germs and bacteria completely and makes it safe to drink. Hence only warming water will not help, we need to boil it at least for 10 minutes.
