Water is life. It’s impossible to separate the two. One of the main reasons why a lot of people don’t have access to clean drinking water is not because they don’t have water but rather the water they have is undrinkable. The main reason for this is poor or no sanitation, resulting in polluted water. Of course such conditions don’t just pollute water supplies they also cause the spread of all forms of sickness and disease.
For most people living in such conditions there is no immediate hope of a massive infrastructural investment taking place to provide a sustainable improvement in basic sanitation and subsequently their lives. This will take changes in government, policies, ideologies, values etc. and a lot of time. So it will continue to be a huge problem despite the impressive work done by many charities.
We are impressed when someone provides a simple solution to a simple problem but when it’s a simple solution to a huge problem we’re hugely impressed. The peepoople :http://www.peepoople.com/” have been around for a few years now and they seem to be making progress. Sometimes it’s as simple as this.
