braam-malherbeI cannot begin to tell you how precious our water is and how everything is affected by how much or how little there is available.

Did you know that in North Africa in places like Darfour there are wars fought over water already?

It is easy to forget how scarce water is if it just streams out the tap, clean and fresh, in seemingly unlimited supply. We are always told to use it wisely and not waste, but have you ever had a “budget” of a limited amount of water and when it was finished there was no more?
