Water connection

BY SARA CORNTHWAITE

Teenager turns on the tap for the first time

Imagine a life with no clean water. Now imagine turning on the tap and seeing clean drinking water flow out of it for the first time? Yadira has never had running water in her house. Before WE brought a water project to her community, the 15-year-old spent much of her day getting water for her family in Bellavista, a community at the basin of the Amazon rainforest in Ecuador. This meant daily walks back and forth to the river to collect pails of unclean water. Watch as Yadira shares how a little water faucet changed her life.
