In conjunction with World Water Day, which is celebrated on 22 March every year, BFM takes a look at a crucial aspect of the battle against the coronavirus: access to clean water. To do this, it speaks to former Minister of Water, Land and Natural Resources, Dr Xavier Jayakumar, who has also been a consistent advocate of these issues, for a sense of the situation on the ground and the challenges in maintaining the national water supply.

Our voluntary writers work hard to keep these articles free for all to read. But we do need funds to support our struggle for Justice, Freedom and Solidarity. To maintain our editorial independence, we do not carry any advertisements; nor do we accept funding from dubious sources. If everyone reading this was to make a donation, our fundraising target for the year would be achieved within a week.
