Water and sanitation-related diseases such as diarrhoea are one of the biggest causes of death for children under five around the world. Every day, more than 800 children die from preventable diseases caused by unclean water, or a lack of sanitation and hygiene.
Poor sanitation, water and hygiene affect more than just children’s health. Children – particularly girls – often miss out on education because schools lack proper toilets and hand-washing facilities. Others miss out because they have to spend their days making long journeys to collect clean water rather than going to school.
When your child comes to you, asking you for food, and you have no food for her to eat, and yet you have to send her to fetch water With an empty stomach.
With an empty stomach, she has to walk 6 hours for a gallon of dirty water.
Because of that water, imagine seeing your daughter take her last breath.
