Everyone knows that major of African people are needing in clear drinking water but for common opinion this happens because of Africa’s geographical location. In reality it is because of poverty and not ability to buy drinking water which is provided from a lot of countries all around the world.
All people wish to be able to wake up each day and turn on a tap that can provide a safe, constant source of drinking water, but this impossible and there are about one billion people who live without access to potable water. They do not have any choices living in area with polluted surface and groundwater sources. These sources are also sources of different diseases such as diarrhea, typhoid, cholera, and worm infection. With this infectious, water-related illness inside yourself you can stay inactive so you can be outside of working activity or school activity and sometime disposing such water leads to lethal outcome. UNICEF reported that about 4,500 children die every day from preventable, water-related diseases. Lack of access to drinkable water can also influent on income, education, and safety. There are situations where women and children walk tens of kilometers one or several times in a day in search of drinkable and safe water.
Climate change also impacts the economic stability of vulnerable communities that rely on water for their livelihoods. Under current climatic conditions, irregular rainfall patterns are straining farms and communities that rely on rain-fed agriculture for food. But sometimes this too much rainfall in a short period can be a result of flooding and losing property, or too little rainfall resulting in drought and famine.
There are thousands was where water is directly linked to poverty. If there is an access to drinkable and safe water so water will be the ending of poverty.
