Countries Most in Need of Clean Water

Providing clean water is an absolutely fundamental task to moving towards a better, more enlightened world. In the west we take clean water for granted, but the reality is, many many places on earth still don’t have access to safe drinking water. The populations of a lot of countries on earth are still drinking dirty water. Let’s have a look at a few of those countries in more detail.

Afghanistan: This is one of the worst offenders on the list for access to clean, safe drinking water. Sadly close to nintey percent of Afghanistan only has access to dirty water. War and turmoil has only exacerbated the problem.

Ethiopia: Lack of access to clean drinking water in this region of Africa accounts for a huge infant mortality rate. Only 1 in 10 Ethiopians have access to clean sanitation and half the population are drinking dirty water.

Chad: There’s been a water and food problem in Chad for some time now. A million+ children in the region are suffering from severe malnutrition.

Cambodia: There’s a serious problem in Cambodia with water contamination. Even with the amount of rain they get and the Mekong river that flows through the area, they still have a water shortage.

Laos: The Mekong river that flows through Cambodia also has a large part that flows through Laos, but despite this, there’s still problems with contamination and a shortage of clean drinking water.

Haiti: 20% of people in Haiti don’t even have access to a clean toilet and at least half of the population are drinking unclean water. The area is still trying to recover from the 7.0 Richter scale earthquake that hit the area a few years ago, so the water problem is just one of many that the country is dealing with right now.

India: With an ever increasing population the country is under tremendous strain and access to clean drinking water is a big problem that’s only getting worse. Almost a quarter of diseases in India are due to dirty drinking water.
