This object is indeed a water container.
Where and how is it being used? In improvished rural areas, clean water is often miles awat from the people who need it., leaving them susceptible to waterborne diseases. The sturdy Q Drum holds 13 gallons in a rolling container that eases the burden of transporting safe, potable water – a task that falls mostly to women and children.
