a word from Bono

2012-09-26 Jaala Spain 006

“Where you live should not determine whether you live, or whether you die.”
― Bono

Diseases from unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war.
90% of the 30,000 deaths that occur every week from unsafe water and unhygienic living conditions are in children under five years old.

clean water alone can reduce water-related deaths by 21%
sanitation alone can reduce water-related deaths by 37.5%

handwashing alone can reduce water-related deaths by 35%
