“More people die from unsafe water than from all forms of violence, including war.” – former UN secretary-general Ban Ki-moon
Access to safe drinking water is a universal human right. Despite this, millions of people around the world do not have access to clean drinking water. In fact, according to World Health Organization, half a million people die from contaminated drinking water every year, most of them children. UNICEF estimates that 700 children under the age of 5 are dying every day from causes linked to unsafe drinking water.
