Fresh water is one of our most vital resources and when our water is polluted it is not only devastating to the environment, but also to human health. Each person on our planet requires at least 20 to 50 liters of clean and safe water per day for drinking, cooking, and cleaning.The importance of water purification and clean waterPolluted water is more dangerous than you might think. Every year 1.8 million people die of diarrheal diseases, like cholera. The United Nations, therefore, considers universal access to clean water a basic human right. A statement we very much believe in. Water-poor communities are typically economically poor as well, their residents trapped in an ongoing cycle of poverty. That’s why humanitarian organizations are needed to provide aid. They enable affected regions to make an essential step towards decreasing the number of people affected by polluted water.
