Bill Gates' wife fetches water with bucket on her head

Despite her status as being married to the richest man in the world, Melinda didn't just carry the bucket on her head but also helped in washing dishes and stayed in the home of a couple in a village.

 

Melinda Gates, the wife of Bill Gates surprised many when she tried fetching water by carrying a 20-litre bucket on her head on a short walk during her visit to Malawi.

'During my stay with the Gawanini family in Malawi, I joined the women collecting drinking water. I carried 20 liters and it was tough. Meanwhile, Chrissy (middle) is carrying about 40 liters. Many women do this every day,' she said of her experience.

Speaking further, Melinda said, 'Helping wash the dishes during my homestay in Malawi. Women spend much of the day cooking and then cleaning up. It’s a reminder that it’s a lot more time consuming to do dishes when you can’t just turn on a faucet.'
