More than 3.4 million people die each year from water, sanitation, and hygiene-related causes. Nearly all deaths, 99 percent, occur in the developing world.
It’s amazing to think that today, in a world of iPhones, space travel, and unprecedented wealth in America that there are still over 768 million people who do not have access to a safe source of drinking water.
The implications of this are massive. Shockingly, diarrhea kills 2,195 children every day—more than AIDS, malaria, and measles combined.
