We have been learning about the lives of some children in countries such as Mozambique. There children the same age as us have to collect water for their family, often carrying up to 10 litres for over 30 minutes in the boiling heat.

We felt how heavy 9 litres was, then how tiring just having our arms above our heads for that long was, even without any water in the bucket!
