The Water & Food Organisation conveys a message of hope and a call for public awareness about the Water and Food challenge. WAF calls for joint action across the business, citizen and public sectors of society.Water is the universal elixir of life. It makes up more than 70 percent of our total body mass and covers the same proportion of the Earth’s surface. We can live without food for a month or more, but we will perish in a matter of days without water. Hence the importance of keeping unseparated Water-and-Food as the most basic necessity.
