Clean Water Project

The water in the most third world countries in urban areas is polluted by industrial waste and untreated sewage. This same waste leaks into streams and pollutes water in rivers and lakes that many in remote locations rely on as their only source of water.

Water sources in rural areas are even polluted with natural contaminations. The most recent concern is groundwater contamination containing arsenic found in the tube wells that many still rely on.

As a result, waterborne illnesses such as dysentery, typhoid, and cholera run rampant in these third world countries.
