Globally, at least 2 billion people use a drinking water source contaminated with feces.
According to WHOlives: Over 80% of water-deprived Women are dependent on travelling distances to obtain water. During which time they are most likely to:
- Endure multiple bouts of malaria
- Drop out of school
- Become a child mother herself
- Be beaten, injured, and/or raped
- Suffer animal bites and dangerous infections
Women are not the only ones who suffer. Nearly 6,000 children die of water-related diseases each day. It is time to end the water crisis.
Women and children spend 3-6 hours a day walking 3.7 miles to collect water. This time can be spent earning money, taking care of family members and going to school.
- No water means people can't get enough to drink, leading to health problems.
- No water means they aren't able to feed their crops or tend to their farm leading to a lack of food.
- No water means they aren't able to wash themselves leading to poor hygiene and disease
No water means no life!
