Aquifers Fond under Kenya

The United Nations and Kenyan officials announced the discovery of a potentially enormous underground supply of water on Sep 11,2013.  The size of that can be roughly the size of Rhode Island.  The water supply could improve the living condition of the northern Kenya.

Kenya has the population of roughly 41 million people, 17 million Kenyans lack sufficient access to safe drinking water and 28 million are without adequate sanitation, said the Unesco.

The found of water open a door to a more prosperous future for the whole country.  The people there must be responsibly to the water by which will use for future generations.

In my eyes, water is the main element for the whole world.  Every small town began their culture near the river.  And then the town getting bigger and bigger.  We could not live without water.  Those people who don’t have the supply for safe drinking water or sensation, how can they live?  We live in another world where people care money, treasure, status.  Think of them, they don’t have water.  Why dose our world comes so much unequal?  This unequal will be more serious in the future. Or maybe not…

    Thank you for sharing this. I recently heard bout this from a classmate also.
    I think it is mysterious and definitely a reason to have hope.
    In my studio, for example, we are looking at storm-water and analyzing how much “free supply” we are taking from our water source, Lake Michigan, daily.
    To hear of such a finding among this particular group of people fills me with hope knowing that as close as we feel we are to losing even something as precious as our water source there may be a light at the end of the tunnel.
    Of course, I do not feel WE are going to suddenly find a hidden water source in the middle of downtown.
    However, if we teach our own generation to be more conscientious of the REAL value of water, perhaps WE too can feel as blessed as these people someday in reference to our abundance of water.
