A shitty situation
Everyone has the right to water and safe, dignified sanitation facilities. It’s as simple as that. But it’s 2022 and over 2 billion people still lack these basic amenities. And the problem doesn’t end there. A lack of access to safe and clean water and washing facilities causes disease and illness. In fact, according to the WorldBank, hygiene promotion is the most cost effective health intervention.
What’s more, communities without basic water access experience greater levels of poverty as livelihoods and businesses suffer and education is more frequently interrupted. At this point, you may be asking, whose responsibility is all this? Well, despite efforts on the part of governments and agencies, funding for water and sanitation needs to increase 4x to hit the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals. And that’s where we come in!
