Social projects in rural areas

As about half the world’s populations lives in rural locations, they need to be served by “small community water supplies”, but these are often very precarious, and thus, vulnerable to contamination or breakdown. Moreover, water can be re-contaminated even in household by unsafe storage or unsafe piped water supplies.

More than 2 million of people die every year by diarrhea caused by drinking unsafe water, or living without adequate sanitation and hygiene, with a vast majority of children under the age of five. According to the WHO/UNICEF Joint Monitoring Programme on Water Supply and Sanitation, increasing access to safe drinking water, improving sanitation and hygiene, and improving water management could prevent 1.4 million child deaths from diarrhea, 500’000 deaths from malaria, and 860’000 child deaths from malnutrition. 

Nowadays, fresh water scarcity is affecting 1/3 of the people all over the world, and the situation is even getting worse, due to population growth, urbanization and increases in the amount of water used in the household and industrial uses of water. Water scarcity appears not only when the water is physically scarce (which is a problem for 1.2 billion people), but also when people are not able to get and/or store potable and safe water. In fact, water scarcity forces people to store water in their house. Unfortunately, the lack of adapted structures to protect water from microbial and parasitic contamination triggers diseases such as malaria, dengue fever among others.
