UNCLEAN WATER AND CHILD MORTALITY
Unclean water is the leading cause of child mortality. Childhood diarrhea is closely associated with insufficient water supply, water contaminated with communicable disease agents, and poor hygiene practices. Diarrhea is estimated to cause 1.5 million child deaths per year, mostly among children under five living in developing countries.The lack of clean water also contributes to many challenges in a community. Children frequently miss school from waterborne illnesses and parents struggle to provide for their families. Women and girls are especially affected as they disproportionately bear the burden of managing household water needs. Many walk kilometers each day to collect contaminated water, and they are often responsible for taking care of sick family members. This prevents many girls from attending school and getting an education that would allow them to have a brighter future.
Ultrafiltration technology used in portable water filters is helping to solve the problem of potable water scarcity. Right now there are thousands of children waiting for a water purifier and we can help. Good portable water purifiers immediately convert dirty water from any puddle, stream, river or other natural sources into safe drinkable water. The cartridges used in good water purifiers contain hundreds of membrane fibers and in each membrane, there are thousands of pores size 0.01 microns. Organic matter, bacteria, protozoa, and viruses that contaminate public water, rivers, lakes, and ponds are larger than membranes pores and blocked. Only the water molecules pass through the pores. With ultrafiltration technology, any water becomes drinkable and absolutely safe for consumption.
We need to teach children. We need to give water to those who have thirsty.
