One of the most important issues today is the lack of access to clean water. So many people lack the nutrition and benefits of clean water that they die from diseases. With out clean water it is hard to stay in school or work, grow food, build homes, and stay healthy. Roughly 1 out of 6 people today do not have very good access to water, and even more don't even have the basic sanitation needed for water. Lack of clean water causes more death in the world than it does from war. In some countries most of their people do not have access to safe drinking water. 2,000 to 5,000 children die each day from diseases such as diarrhea-related diseases because of poor sanitation and hygiene.
