Silent Crisis -
Throughout the world today there
is a silent crisis – lack of Clean Water. The harsh reality
is that dirty water is the cause of a public health crisis
that recurs every day in cities, slums, and villages around
the world. In Mali, a parched West African country, the
government has focused on sanitation and pure water
launching the first national version of a global charity
campaign to “End Water Poverty”.
The scale of the crisis is enormous one billion people do
not have access to safe water. The result is that streets,
homes, water and food are coated in germs that, when
ingested, cause debilitating illnesses. Chief among them is
diarrhea, which takes the lives of 4,300 children under the
age of five every day, according to Unicef. That places it
second only to pneumonia as the biggest child killer, with
more deaths than malaria, measles and HIV/Aids combined. The
link between reducing poverty and investing in water and
hygiene is irrefutable. The UN calculates that each dollar
invested in water and sanitation yields an $8 benefit in
productivity gained and costs averted.
In the Himalayan
Mountains of Nepal it is clear why women are denied
income-earning opportunities because they spend four hours a
day collecting spring water.
The output of rice
farmers in rural Bangladesh is strangled when they cannot
irrigate their paddy fields or fight insect infestations
because they are confined to the bed by diarrhea – or when
they cannot buy higher–yielding seeds because so much of
their income is spent on oral rehydration salts to purify
The education of
Malian children is impaired when sickness or water
collection duties make them miss
classes, or when their school fees are spent on buying
supplies from water sellers.
Even those who live
in cities that have their water cleaned at a water plant do
not have access to pure water. By the time the water reaches
them it passing through several unclean water supply lines
making the water in their home undrinkable.
bottled water is available it is often very expense. These
problems reinforce inequality, because the availability of
clean water tends to match the distribution of wealth, which
means the poorest and weakest members of society – suffer
most from their absence.
