March 11 is World Plumbing Day.
Since 2010 it is a date that has been fixed on the calendars of political and social institutions around the globe.

Early morning before all daily routine tasks start people have to fetch water from communal sources located always in centres of towns. Very few people have access to runnng water or wells in their housholds. Fetching water is often the task of women or children. A typical yellow container is 50 l.
