World Water Day

We shall not finally defeat AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria,
or any of the other infectious diseases that plague the
developing world until we have also won the battle for safe
drinking-water, sanitation and basic health care.

Kofi Annan, United Nations Secretary-General

• 1.4 million children die due to diarrhea resulting from contaminated water every year
• 43% of water-related deaths are attributed to diarrhea
