In most Developing Countries, families lack the access to clean water supplies. Most of the water is polluted, full of bacteria and full of harmful contaminants and has severely affected the health of humans who have drank from these unsafe waterways.
In fact, a study showed that nearly 1 billion people, most of them in developing countries, do not have access to clean, safe water. That is the equivalent of 1 in 8 people on the planet.
Due to the desperation of not finding potable water, people find the need of drinking contaminated water from ponds and rivers.
Son, we finally found some water!
Mom I'm thirsty! I'm going to drink some water.
We have to rush them to the hospital!!
As a result, they get a severe sickness from drinking unsafe water.
The child has sadly passed away!! The mother has luckily survived because she has a stronger system that was able to resist the waterborne disease.
A study has shown that nearly half thepopulation of Africans have a water related disease, and 20% of children deaths are caused by a water-borne disease.
Since the lack of clean water has become a major problem in developing countries, especially those in Africa, far developed countries are trying to implement some plans along with environmental organizations in hopes of increasing the quality of water in these countries and reduce the number of deaths as a result of the unsafe water.
