Water under Fire


To know more:

What if we told you that you used a weapon of war today? In many conflicts, more children die from water-related diseases than from bullets or bombs. Restricting the access to water and attacking water infrastructure and workers are some of the ways that water is being used as a weapon. An attack on water is an attack on children.


Food for Thought:

  1. What do you know about war? 
  2. What are some of the implications of war and conflicts, especially towards children? 
  3. Why water could result in more casualties in children than that of mere bullets and bombs? Share your thought.
