2 billion people have gained access to improved drinking water because of smart investment in water and sanitation. This is resulting in 1,656 children’s lives saved every day. Now that’s great news, but there is still much to do – 3.4 million people die each year from water, sanitation and hygiene related causes. Completely preventable, stupid, loss of life that should not be allowed in today’s world. Yet it goes on. Women and girls are most affected by this tragic reality, keeping them trapped in extreme poverty and devastated by preventable disease.
