A GLOBAL CRISIS
In the face of increasing global conflicts over resources, it is worth taking a closer look at the issue of drinking water shortage.
Not only does water cover a large part of the earth’s surface, it also accounts for 60% of the human body and is crucial for our living.
The access to safe drinking water and sanitation has therefore been recognised as a human right by the United Nations in 2010.
While access to safe drinking water is a standard in most Western countries, that’s not the case for many countries worldwide, especially in Latin America, Asia and Africa. Several diseases like cholera, dysentery or typhoid are caused by contaminated water sources.
The cost of one filter is €25. This enables a family of 5 to get their daily supply of clean drinking water for at least 2 years.
