To : A Drop of Life Limited 點滴是生命
To people living in the cities, a cup of clean water is never out of reach; but to some 10 million peasants residing in the arid regions in Northwest China, having a sip of clean water is merely a dream of luxury.
Northwest China is one of the driest regions in the world. Annual rainfall is only about 300mm yet annual evaporation rate is as high as 1,500-2,000mm. Drinking water for human beings and livestock predominantly comes from the little volume of rainwater collected by water cellars, an underground container solely used for such purpose. Due to poverty, most peasants cannot afford to build a water cellar on their own, and therefore water shortage has become a major problem in their daily living.
Persistent drought has made cultivation hardly possible and the hygiene condition extremely poor. To solve the root of this problem, we have to help peasants build rain-saving water cellars, equipping them with accessible drinking water to grow crops and raise livestock on their own.
