malaysia needs our help
by Sophie Campbell
Hi, my name is Sophie Campbell, and I'm a year seven from Craigmore South Primary School.
Recently I have been doing a project on the water pollution in Malaysia.
It is terrible, there is a scarce amount of fresh water for tribal groups in Malaysia and they depend on that river supply to live. They use it for crops, bathing, drinking, and for the animals who live in the water.
Due to the construction around a lot of Malaysia's rivers, the surrounding soil has no tree roots to hold on to, so when it rains it wears down by erosion
and ends up in the river, which causes it to become all dirty and disgusting. The fish and things in the water die and the drinking water is disgusting, and you wouldn't want to bathe in it. The water is also getting polluted by industries dumping waste in Malaysia's waters and it's washing into the rivers.
I don't think this should go on; I'm sure that you wouldn't want this to happen to your water supply.
