The goal of World Water Day is to raise awareness about the water crisis that is happening in our world.
Only 13% of the country has clean drinking water readily available, according to NationMaster.
Africa is one of the first places that many think of when considering those most in need of water. A country that holds the largest part of the Mekong River is experiencing a water crisis due to low water levels. Water.org reports that one in five people in Haiti lack access to a sanitary toilet and half of the people in the area lack access to clean water.
Rwanda is a developing nation that is rich in water resources yet lacks the infrastructure to bring clean water to its population. One of the major health problems in Bangladesh can be traced to water scarcity and a lack of quality water.
If you want to help give water to those who are in need please get involved, spread the word or make a donation to Water.org. Many countries and regions suffering shortages of potable water may, coincidentally, need to be investing in power generation. It is worth noting that conventional coal and nuclear power stations have to be sited near bodies of water and consume large quantities, whereas, if only power generation is required, the technology described in the above link can be air-cooled and so is deployable in arid regions. Anybody worried about equitable availability of potable water should consider staunch support of this essential power source. We need to educate ourselves on where the crisis is taking place and then we need to do our best to make it so that there will never be a need for another World Water Day. Some areas of Afghanistan are physically scarce of water, but the majority of the population is affected by a lack of safe access to clean water.


The Horn of Africa is being hit with the worst drought that it has ever seen which is causing a food shortage and also a water shortage. The Mekong River flows through this area of Southeast Asia and it is often affected by monsoon season from May to November.
Haiti is still trying to recover from the 2010 7.0 magnitude earthquake that killed an estimated 316,000 people and devastated buildings, residences and many settlements including Port-au-Prince. When she isn’t writing or raising her kids with her life partner, she is busy being vocal about feeding the hungry, sheltering the homeless, and bringing attention to human rights violations all over the world. Many of us can walk to a grocery store and buy bottled water or we can just go into our kitchens or bathrooms to get water from a tap. Inadequate infrastructure to supply water, increased pollution, neglect and destruction from turmoil in the country have all led to an increased need for clean water for a growing population of people. Oxfam reports that over one million children are at risk of severe acute malnutrition in the areas of Chad, Burkina Faso, Mali, Mauritania, Niger and northern Senegal. Water.org pledged to bring 50,000 Haitians water at the 2009 Clinton Global Initiative Annual Meeting.
Very few families have access to improved sanitation and many families lack access to safe water.
Water shortages and a lack of clean, accessible water increases a threat to the Rwandan people. A lack of technology, contamination of water, and a reliance on rainfall for drinking water contribute to the water crisis in Cambodia.
According to the Asia Foundation, “In recent years, hydropower has become one of Laos’ largest industries, and much of the farming – subsistence agriculture supports 80 percent of the population – and resulting food supply in Laos is affected by the health of the Mekong and its tributaries.” Low water levels can mean devastation for those living in the area. Progress has been made in the country, but much more is needed to bring safe water to a growing population.


The population faces preventable diseases such as diarrhea, cholera, typhoid, and many other diseases.
Many in the slums of Dhaka, the capital city, do not have access to a safe toilet and only 16% of the population in rural areas actually has access to a latrine. All life form should have a it is a basic thing and source of nutrients in order to keep the earth and sources healthy.
Soil erosion, deforestation, and a lack of water treatment facilities are contributing to Haiti’s water crisis. Diarrhea and guinea worm (an endemic in Ghana and three other countries) are the common waterborne illnesses. Population in Bangladesh is increasing especially in urban areas and the need for clean, safe water for consumption and for safe, sanitary toilet usages. There are many reasons that we have a lack of water in the needed countries, the reason is that many coke companies and big export companies use the water from the soil and land to collect the nutrient and ingredients that they need for there supplies and drinks. The effect of a lackage of water could end up devastating, and in many cases as a war or even a world war rampage leaving the poor countries in the middle of the mess. Sometimes walking up to six hours to collect water from unprotected pools of water that might be contaminated.
