Millions of women and children in South Africa and many millions more in other developing countries are forced to carry heavy water containers every day!
- According to the United Nations 1 billion people are without adequate access to water.
- The number of people who do not have access to clean water in Africa is equivalent to the total population of the United States (US) and Russia combined.
- Most of them are women and children who are forced to carry water to their homes, often walking long distances of between 2 - 10 km.
- This is time consuming and takes between 3 - 9 hours out of their daily lives to walk to the nearest river or borehole and then carry a bucket full of water on their heads all the way home.
The Hippo Water Roller is the answer and a new revolutionary way to collect water.
