The World is Hungry Because We are Thirsty: Greeting from the organizers of the Bonaqua Water Day Kids Event, an extension of World Water Day 2012 Activities held in Hulhumale Children’s Park near HDC on 6th April 2012 @16:00-18:00.
Every day is a Water Day for those of us at WaterCare. The water voice of the young girl still ringing clear in our ears on the importance of economizing and protecting water for health, let us thank the Officials and volunteers who made it happen.
Our Volunteer team of Officials (Aru, Nishama, Jenny, Shamun, Humaid) were terrific. WAAOW! They pulled together. Thanks Lai for your invaluable support and Guidance.
A pleasant surprise when Mody dropped by adding a final touch with the entertainment of his Beat box art needed to electrify the kids who had energy to spent, ready for a bit of voice box teasing. Mody’s powerful voice, often singing, at times imitating a full rock band with intermittent sound of machine gun and sniper fire, to the delight of young electronic gamers in the gathering who had a few acts up their sleeves to show, as well
In the mean time some of the other kids went on with water games: water foot print quiz, solving the water security jigsaw puzzle with face painting for the younger, against the back drop of the art work of “children give water a voice ” international art competition (for which students participation was manged by WaterCare on the occasion of world water day 2011) and photos of student participants who took part in the Water Integrity Photo Contest arranged by Water Integrity Network, an International NGO based in Stockholm for world water day 2011. We do not have words to thank EDC and Soodha, in particular for support and guidance for participating in the international water integrity art and photo competitions. Last but not lease we thank Bonaqua for selecting Water Care to organise this event to mark the World Water Day this year.
When the function ended at 18:00. the kids left for home with their families taking with them knowledge which hopefully will enrich their lives for water is a human right; and we depend on our youth and children to facilitate water safety for generations to come.
