Living water 1

Every Friday I will try to post facts about Mozambique and/or safe water.

In Mozambique extreme poverty remains widespread, with low life expectancy and a high child mortality rate. The government estimates that over half of the population does not have safe water to drink. This situation, combined with inadequate sanitation, means that water-related illnesses become killers, with diarrhea causing around 10% of deaths in children under the age of five. – WaterAid
