Waterborne Diseases

Zimbabwe can't stop it alone

What is a Waterborne Disease?

A waterborne disease is a disease spread by snails insect larvae, worms and other harmful parasites found in dirty water. Waterborne diseases can shorten life expectancy, slow economic growth and development, and lower life standards. Many people in Zimbabwe don't have access to clean drinking water so they use dirty buckets to get dirty water they drink or wash themselves with. This causes the spread of waterborne diseases.
