Unclean Water

Help save lives that are dying due to polluted water

Will Boiling water help?

The Problem:


1 third of people in the entire world have unclean water to drink. Almost 90 Percent of children die due to this problem. Women and children spend at least 125 MILLION hours per day collecting water, and most of it isn't clean. 2,200 people die per day from unclean water. This is a problem, and boiling water could be the solution. It takes away the chemicals, and evaporates the water so that it is safe.

The Solution (How to Boil)

To get rid of the bacteria:

Create a campfire (make sure it is outdoor as there is more oxygen) Place your water on top of it in a bowl and boil for half an hour. Let it then cool and your clean water is ready!

Why is Unclean water such a problem?

Not only does walking for water keep kids out of school or take up time that parents could be using to earn money, but the water often carries diseases that can make everyone sick. Every 90 seconds a child dies from water related incidents.

Boiling Water May be our only chance!
