There are many partnership, alliances networks, and even individuals existing within the Water, Hygiene and Sanitation sectors who are striving to provide safe clean water to the poor disadvantaged communities in the world.
The Clean Water for the World Team is a group of like-minded people inviting you to attend a HEALTHY & SAFE WATER FOR THE WORLD INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE on 8th -11th JULY 2008, Mubende UGANDA. 5 billion children in developing countries are diagnosed with diarrhea each year.
1.8 million of these children die from diarrheal illness due to drinking unclean safe water or ingesting contaminated food. Diarrhea caused by drinking contaminated water kills more people than HIV/AIDS or malaria. Diarrhea kills one child every 3 minutes. In today’s world, water is more than a source of life. Deprivation linked to water is a source of poverty, of inequality, of social injustice, and of great disparities in life chances. That is deprivation because water is a human right - none of us should turn a blind eye to the violation of human rights. STOP WATER BORNE ILLNESS (WDI). Clean Water For the World.
