And while kids in Honduras and Bangladesh spend hours physically hauling or standing in line for water, this isn’t just a problem for developing countries — it’s happening in our own back yard, too. The water crisis is caused by politics, poverty and pollution, which are things that affect many regions, even in America. For instance, families in Central Valley, California cannot drink their tap water because fertilizer and pesticides have contaminated it. 

“Safe, clean water is not only a basic human necessity,” Linda says. “It’s a basic human right. Or ought to be. That’s what kids believe, and I agree.” Watch the eye-opening report on the global water crisis on Your Thirsty World, which premieres on Sunday, April 18, at 8:30 p.m.
