Egypt: Water Problems

Egyptian Baheyya writes about water shortages and the problems they cause in Giza, Egypt.

1 comment

  • Yes, the water challenges facing humanity today seem overwhelming. However, water teaches us that if we respect and manage water properly – it will reward us with life in abundance. And, if we pollute and mismanage water – we and many other life forms will suffer disease and abbreviated time on Earth.
    The lessons of water are simple and profound. Therefore, any effort on behalf of water is commendable and in communion with the creative purpose of water.
    Even the smallest effort, such as not wasting even one drop, or not buying plastic consumer goods – which cause pollution in their creation and disposal, and take away energy from the living world – never mind be a nonliving entity taking space away from the living – is the step in the right direction.
    Blessings, William E. Marks ( http://www.watervoices.com )
