It spreads disease. Compromises safety. Makes education elusive and economic opportunity farther out of reach. The lack of access to safe water is deadly, dangerous, and a major obstacle to the people of developing nations becoming economically empowered. It is what is standing between billions of people and their health, safety, and the opportunity to unlock their true potential.
And if you don't think that impact your life here in the comforts of your own home? Think again! Those diseases can rampantly spread throughout the world.
In most developed nations, we take access to safe water and sanitation for granted. But this wasn’t always the case. A little more than 100 years ago, New York, London and Paris were centers of infectious disease. Child death rates were as high then as they are now in much of Sub-Saharan Africa. It was sweeping reforms in water and sanitation that enabled progress. In fact, in a 2007 poll by the British Medical Journal, clean water and sanitation access was designated the most important medical advancement since 1840.
WATER.ORG knows how to bring people safe water and improved sanitation. "We don't have to wait for a magic cure. And the solutions are simple and cost-effective. On average, every one US dollar invested in water and sanitation provides an economic return of four US dollars. For only $25, Water.org can bring someone access to clean, safe water."
