Hillary Clinton on water

a nice qoute:

HILLARY RODHAM CLINTON, SECRETARY OF STATE, USA

Perhaps no two issues are more important to human health, economic
development, and peace and security than basic sanitation and access to
sustainable supplies of water. I have witnessed this first-hand. Without
reliable supplies of clean water, people cannot live, farmers cannot grow
crops, and the environment on which we all depend cannot survive. Without
proper sanitation, human health and dignity suffer, and the environment and
water supplies often become contaminated. Together, we must work to ensure
that no child dies from a preventable water-related disease, that no girl
fears going to school for lack of access to a separate toilet, that no
woman walks six kilometers to collect water for her family, and that no war
is ever fought over water.

Report to Congress
of the Senator Paul Simon
Water for the Poor Act, June 2009

Couldn’t agree more!
