Many of us barely think twice when we need to use water.
We just pop to the loo, hit the flush then watch our solid or liquid waste disappear before our eyes. We feel thirsty, walk to the tap and then fill our glasses with safe drinking water without issue. We need to wash the dishes, turn on the tap and get instant access to water.
But for a huge percentage of the global population, the reality is very different.
According to the United Nations; “3 in 10 people lack access to safely managed drinking water services and 6 in 10 people lack access to safely managed sanitation facilities. At least 892 million people continue to practice open defecation.”
This Water Action Month (March 2022), we’re standing with the End Water Poverty campaign to make a difference.
By raising awareness of the issues and finding better eco-friendly solutions, we can ensure the world has access to this basic human right.
Access to drinking water and sanitation services are recognised as basic human rights. Without them, we cannot ensure people can live healthy lifestyles, keep disease at bay, eradicate poverty or maintain our dignity as human beings.
However, water scarcity affects around 40% of the global population and is likely to rise.
The numbers of deaths alone as a result of this are astonishing. Every day, 1,000 children die due to preventable water and sanitation-related diarrheal diseases and unsafe water is said to account for 1.2 million deaths every year.
Together, we can take action to help ensure universal access to clean drinking water and sanitation, without causing damage to our fragile planet.
