Dirty Water Kills

Dirty water is the biggest obstacle to health and progress in developing communities around the world. Roughly 5.7% of all illnesses or disabilities around the world are caused by unsafe water.

Water is life’s most basic essential, yet around the world 1 in 9 people do not have access to clean water close to home. The WHO estimates over 800,000 people die each year from illnesses related to unsafe water. Young children in developing nations are particularly vulnerable with 800 children under 5 dying every day due to water-borne diseases.

In Niger, more than 10 million people don’t have access to clean water whilst, in Mali, 4,000 children under 5 die each year from diarrhea caused by poor sanitation and dirty water. Elsewhere, in Pakistan, continued drought threatens millions of people with severe water scarcity.
