Critical Water Shortage - Regional Town

Water Warwick 2019

Regional Town Runs out of Water.

Such a catastrophic event to happen for any town. Here at KDK we started having conversations with the children about water conservation. We spoke about our water footprint, as most children in suburbia don’t have an understanding of “how much water they use when brushing teeth, having a shower or bath, washing their hair, washing clothes, doing the dishes”

From here we spoke about the Highschool Student that was interviewed on the tv, he spoke about not being able to flush the toilet and only being able to shower once a week on a Sunday, and how he was so thirsty because they just didn’t have any water available, when he turned the tap on nothing came out of the faucet, their dogs and other animals were dying because they didn’t have any water to give them.

From here we asked the children what could we do as a community to help. The children came up with the idea of each family (if they were able) to supply a slab of water each to be donated to the community of Warrick, or they could donate a gold coin donation.  What a wonderful idea and gesture for these amazing school aged children to come up with, showing such empathy and support for others.

The children promoted this cause by making posters and banners to display at our service, by having conversations with their families, teachers and friends.


By the end of the week our service with the help of the community were able to donate 2 pallets of water.
