Water and Health


​​​​​Contaminated water places tremendous strain on the lives and health of people, especially when their only option is to drink directly from the source. 

Many Africans live in rural areas and informal settlements where the risk of contracting a waterborne and/or sanitation related disease is high due to inadequate access to potable water supply and sanitation services. ​
