Because every single drop counts. Every year on March 22, World Water Day is observed to raise awareness about the importance of water and educate people to conserve it. The prime focus is to support the achievement of UN's Sustainable Development Goal, which is to ensure safe water and sanitation for all by 2030. On World Water Day, let us collectively stop the over use, exploitation and wastage of every single drop of water.
