Water changes lives
Around 700 million people in 43 countries suffer today from water scarcity. Approximately 3.5 million deaths related to inadequate water supply, sanitation and hygiene occur each year, predominantly in developing countries.
Sufficient water supply of appropriate quality is a key ingredient in the health and well-being of humans and ecosystems.
Children, girls in particular, can attend school rather than spending time fetching water from non-secure sources.
Safe water improves health and education and therefore the development of the community.
