Water is an issue in Sierra Leone. Kids are at risk since the lack of clean water for consumption is one of the main reasons for child mortality in the country. Most often, kids and women are the ones who are charged to get water for the family. Climate change makes the matter worse. Water is becoming more and more a scarce resource in Sierra Leone.
