Access to water
Currently, 785 million people do not have basic access to water.
The availability of water is not enough to keep children healthy: water must also be safe and affordable. This means it must come from a reliable source such as a well, tap, or hand pump; free from fecal and chemical contamination; readily available for at least 12 hours a day; and located on the premises of a child’s home or within a reasonable range. In many countries, however, children and women serve as water carriers for the entire family, exposing them to many risks and security vulnerabilities.
