L’acqua di Bumba (Bumba’s water)

L’acqua di Bumba (Bumba’s water)

For the first time, Bumba, with an earthen jar balanced on his head, is carrying water from the spring to the village. The water is very precious and Bumba, who is not very strong and does not want to spill it, is walking at the end of a line of women and children crossing the savannah. At a certain point he meets an old dark-skinned man, with a white dog, who asks him for some of his water: Bumba doesn’t know what to do, he doesn’t know, but he acts instinctively and… A moving story about the generosity of which only children are capable. A story that teaches the value of water.
