HEALTH AND HYGIENE Diseases due to non-drinking water and the lack of hygiene bases kill more people each year than any form of violence, including war conflicts. Children are the most exposed, as they are not strong enough to fight diarrhea, dysentery and other serious illnesses. 90% of the 30,000 deaths per week are caused by children under the age of five, who have died due to non-drinking water and poor hygiene conditions. The WHO report states that more than 3.6% of the world's disease can be eradicated simply by improving supplies of drinking water, sanitation and hygiene. nddd.
WOMEN AND CHILDRENOnly in African regions, people spend 40 billion hours each year to walk to the nearest water source. This task often involves women and children walking for miles to reach the water source, and often this is not sheltered and therefore subject to various contaminations.
The time spent walking and illnesses that result from drinking water away from school, women from work and their family. Also during the course of their journey they are often subjected to threats and sexual assaults. With a source of drinking water nearby, women would be free to pursue new opportunities and improve the quality of life of their families.
