Save the Water

Diarrhea caused by inadequate drinking water, sanitation, and hand hygiene kills an estimated 842,000 people every year globally, or approximately 2,300 people per day.*

The NPH house in Mexico invited all the children to participate in an art contest to think about how important water is, why we care about water, and water quality. This also included the consequences of not having clean water. The challenge was to create a poster, a drawing, a video, a dance or a song, with the topic about how important is water and how to protect water. The children were very creative (as you can see in the pictures) and were very motivated to win! The best in primary and secondary school received medals and water ice in different flavors. We are very proud of our children because we could see that they already know a lot about how important water is for our planet and for our health.


El día 22 de marzo se realizó la actividad por el día internacionelevenal del agua, se repartió información de la importancia de cuidar el vital líquido, el concurso trató de realizar un cartel, un dibujo, videos o una canción acerca del agua. Tuvimos una gran participación de todos los niños de casa y a los ganadores se les dio una medalla de primer lugar, así mismo disfrutaron de helados de agua. Los carteles de cada grupo están pegados en el comedor para que todos puedan aprovechar de los mensajes/informaciones que contienen. Así hemos visto que nuestros niños saben de la importancia de agua en este mundo y nuestra salud.
