Water gives Renuka strength

Water gives strength

Water was once the source of all Renuka's struggles. She had to walk far and wait in line to get her drinking water, and it made her absent for work.

She had to carry heavy vessels, full of water for herself and her siblings, and it hurt her head, her spine, her arms, and her legs. And the water was often unsafe for drinking.

So when a Water.org partner approached Renuka, and told her about WaterCredit, she took the loan immediately.

Renuka's water connection gives her strength, and the ability to earn a living. Tell the world what water gives you at waterday.org
