Some communities were visited over the past years in the cause of humanitarian services by Clean Water International that are in desperate need of clean water. And there is no place to escape any of it. In these places, the only available water lies in old holes (Well) in the ground, dirty stream water, and faulty manual boreholes. There were also scenarios wherein women in the communities had no choice but to hoist water out by rope, one bucket at a time. And that children walk on every morning before sunrise and spend hours finding unclean water for drinking; hence, this affects their access to education in the muddy stream for the water they share with their livestock neighbors. The water they consume is dirty and unclean, and as a result, they constantly suffer from stomach pain, typhoid, and diarrhea and lose children to water-related diseases!
This is a world most of the human race does not know, and many people live in such demanding conditions to find clean and safe water. And yet, it is the reality that 663 million people worldwide lack access to clean water and an estimated 1,375 people die every day due to contaminated water! The rest of humanity got lucky.
