Water Health Life
Just one of most things we take for granted
Suffering of diseases
One child in every 20 seconds... 4,000 children every day... 1.5 million every year...
These are how many children are dying from diarrhoea due to lack of clean water sanitation.
Many others die from cholera and typhoid, Mosquitos also carry malaria that feed and breed in dirty waters.
Women and girls pay the price
The lack of clean water can harm many people and at most times, kill them, but, the responsibility of transferring the harmful water into the lives of many vulnerable people falls to the women and girls. Having to carry the dirty water up to six kilometres from the nearest water source pulls a threat, not only are they walking for most of the day, but they run the risk of assaults or getting bitten by a snake.
The water the women and children collect from lakes and rivers is contaminated wich causes death.
They are forced to travel kilometres with a bucket of deadly water on their heads all the way home.
Women and girls risk the threat of assault or by getting bit by a snake.
