• One-in-six people in the world lack safe drinking water.
• Water-related illnesses are the leading cause of human sickness and death.
- 1.1 billion people in the world do not have access to safe drinking water, roughly one-sixth of the world’s population.
- The water and sanitation crisis claims more lives through disease than any war claims through guns.
- More than 40 million hours are wasted each year in Africa alone from women and children gathering water.
- 80 % of diseases in the developing world are caused by contaminated water.
- Half of the world’s hospital beds are filled with people suffering from water related illnesses.
- The average distance that women in Africa walk to collect water is six kilometers.
- The average African Family uses 5 gallons per day. Tens of millions of children cannot go to school as they must fetch water every day.
- Water is a $400 billion dollar global industry; the third largest behind electricity and oil.
- In the past 10 years, diarrhea has killed more children than all the people lost to armed conflict since World War II.
- If we did nothing other than provide access to clean water, without any other medical intervention, we could save 2 million lives a year.
- It is estimated that 5.3 billion people, two-thirds of the world’s population, will suffer from water shortages by 2025.
- 2.2 million people in developing countries, most of them children, die every year from diseases associated with lack of access to safe drinking water, inadequate sanitation and poor hygiene.
- Some 6,000 children die every day from disease associated with lack of access to safe drinking water, inadequate sanitation and poor hygiene – equivalent to 20 jumbo jets crashing every day.
- The UN estimates it would cost an additional $30 billion to provide access to safe water to the entire planet. That’s a third of what the world spends in a year on bottled water.
- An estimated 25% of people from cities in developing countries purchase their water from vendors at a significantly higher price than piped water. In some cases, it costs more than a quarter of their household income.
