Clean Water and Sanitation
Clean Water and Sanitation
"Thousands of one have lived without love not one without water." A prepossessing quote by W.H Auden. The combination of safe drinking water and hygienic sanitation facilities is a precondition for health and for success in the fight against poverty, hunger, child deaths, and gender inequality. Clean water and sanitation are really important in life. Water, Sanitation, Hygiene, or wash, are issues that affect the health and wellbeing of every person in the world. ... The quality of water, sanitation, and hygiene in a person's life is really very important. Sanitation refers to public health conditions related to clean drinking water and adequate treatment and disposal of human excreta and sewage. ... Sanitation systems aim to protect human health by providing a clean environment that will stop the transmission of disease, especially through the fecal-oral route.
Water and Sanitation are the 2 important things that can lead a person to live a safe, secure, and healthy life. In my opinion, there is a lot of lack of Water and Sanitation in the world like in many rural areas, old cities, and different villages. These were the examples in which people can't afford clean water and proper sanitation.
For instance, when girls menstruate in these rural areas, cities, and villages they mostly use napkins and tissue papers which can affect their health really badly. Also, they use those napkins and tissues regularly after using it once. This can also affect the healthy lifestyle of a girl who is menstruating. In this case, also the infection spreads and catches really quickly to their surroundings which is also a really bad effect.
Furthermore, as a fact, More than 163 million people in India do not have access to clean water, the highest in the world. It also faces several challenges on water resources due to climate change, says a new study by WaterAid, a global advocacy group on water and sanitation.
Also, a staggering 344 million practice open defecation. The World Bank estimates that 21 percent of communicable diseases in India are linked to unsafe water and the lack of hygiene practices. Further, more than 500 children under the age of five die each day from diarrhea in India alone.
Adding more, When waters run dry, people can't get enough to drink, wash, or feed crops and economic decline may occur. In addition, inadequate sanitation—a problem for 2.4 billion people—can lead to deadly diarrheal diseases, including cholera and typhoid fever, and other water-borne illnesses.
A gentle request that please consume clean water and have safe, secure, and healthy sanitation.
Now I would end with a quote, Water is Life. Don't Waste it.
