The most essential ingredient of life is water.
Most of the human body is composed of water. (Brain – 75%, Lung – 86%, Kidney – 83%, Blood – 83%). An average human requires about 2 liters of water daily to survive. No water, no life.
Planet, Earth faced on Worldwide Water Crisis
More than 3.4 million people die each year from water, sanitation, and hygiene-related causes. Nearly all deaths, 99 percent, occur in the developing world. Lack of access to clean water and sanitation kills children at a rate equivalent of a jumbo jet crashing every four hours.
Of the 60 million people added to the world’s towns and cities every year, most move to informal settlements (i.e. slums) with no sanitation facilities.780 million people lack access to an improved water source; approximately one in nine people.
The water and sanitation crisis claims more lives through disease than any war claims through guns.
