THE STORY:

As we know, people can’t live without water. However, there are living people who don’t have access to a purified source so their life is full of disease, diarrhea, parasites and more. Life could be so much fuller if only they had clean water. In Northern ghana most of the districts are remote and poor, with less than half of the population unable to access safe water and very few families with access to improved sanitation. The rural areas suffer from many waterborne diseases, including diarrhea and guinea worm, which is only endemic in Ghana and three other countries. Guinea worm can be eradicated by drinking clean, uncontaminated water. Community Water Solutions and partner organizations work with communities to construct wells, latrines and biosand filters in Ghana as well as to provide health and hygiene education. 1.2 billion people lack access to a purified water source. Populations are growing and the crisis is gaining momentum as clean water sources can’t keep up with the demand. Getting water from wells, rivers and ponds is quite normal in many places around the world.
