Water scarcity affects over 2.7 billion people for at least one month each year.
Diseases from unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation kill more people
every year than all forms of violence, including war!
For the poor:
Lack of safe water & sanitation causes loss of one work day per week of a
school going child !
Everyday an adult (typically women of the family) spends 3-4 working hours
in a day on sourcing water or overcoming sanitation problems.
78% of all illnesses in urban poor communities are caused due to lack of clean
water and sanitation.
Clean Water has the ability to transform lives, communities & nations.
Drop by Drop let us all contribute to build a Water Secure World free of thirst,
hunger and disease!
