Playing in the water

Special mention
Photographer: Shoeb Faruquee - Chittagong, Bangladesh

Recreational use of water - as seen in this photograph - can have benefits to health but also adverse effects if it is polluted or unsafe. A healthy and enabling environment for children around the world is one which among other things allows them to play and have joy.
