The UN General Assembly declares the right to safe and clean drinking water and sanitation as a human right that is essential for the full enjoyment of life and all human rights, according to the United Nations General Assembly Resolution A/RES/64/292, passed 122-0 on July 26, 2010 (with 41 nations, including the United States, abstaining.) I went to Kadam Chawl exactly four months after the passage of the resolution to document the struggle of ten families to get enough water to satisfy their daily needs. Kadam Chawl consists of 10 one-room, concrete-frame homes lined up along a cramped stone pathway. Near the chawl's entrance is the feature most crucial to its residents' survival: the main water tap. The ten families that live there get water only for half an hour every night at 9:00 pm.
