Lack of Water in Africa

The Problem

Did you know that every 20 seconds a child dies from a water-related disease? Would that amount of children ever even crossed your mind? There are many other disturbing facts about water-related diseases. An example is that more people have mobile phones than toilets. Or, that less than 1 in 3 people that live in Sub-Saharan Africa have access to a toilet. That is extremely sad! The lack of clean water in Africa is a major problem. Besides the unclean water, there is also no access to sanitation, and 40% of the world's population live without access to clean water. The results from this horrible crisis may leave you in tears. Here's the worst part....this crisis is solvable. With the help of many willing people, we can FIX this terrible disaster.

WaterAid transforms lives by improving access to safe water, hygiene and sanitation in the world's poorest communities.

WaterAid is changing lives of people all over Africa. They have had a great impact so far and are still helping the people in need. They work with 26 countries worldwide, and about 18 of them are in Africa. For example, almost half of the population in Tanzania doesn't have access to any clean water. WaterAid has led 64,000 people to clean water and/or improved sanitation in the last year (in Tanzania). WaterAid is making an amazing impact on a ton of places, and they will continue to help end the problem with water and sanitation.
