End Water Poverty2.5 Billion people don’t have access to safe sanitation.

‘So what?’ you might ask.

How about:

5000 children die everyday as a result

Half the world’s poorest people suffering serious health problems as a result.

Education is rendered virtually impossible

Economic development of the poorest countries is undermined

Basically, all the key areas of development are compromised meaning you can kiss goodbye to the Millennium Development Goals.

But don’t take my word for it: http://www.wateraid.org/uk/about_us/newsroom/6939.asp
