1 in 6 people in the world don’t have access to safe water
Nearly 1 BILLION people!
That’s like TWO AND A HALF United States!
Or, FOUR Brazils!
Or TWENTY FOUR Canadas!
Imagine not knowing how far you’ll have to walk to reach water each day – or even if it will be clean. Imagine if you and your neighbours were unable to drink the water near your home because it could kill you.
Sometimes when we hear these numbers, we don’t realize just how many people face this reality every day.
In Sub-Saharan Africa, 1 in every 2 people live without a clean water source.
