It’s hard for us to imagine living in our homes without safe, clean drinking water and flushable toilets. What if you had to send your child out every day to collect water for domestic use? And what if the closest source of water was a polluted pond, stream or river, more than a mile away?
In Nigeria, one third of the population has no access to clean drinking water. Those in that group often use water polluted by human and animal waste along with chemical pollution from mining and refinery operations.
One-third of Nigerians have no access to clean drinking water. This photo was sent to us from one of our partners in Nigeria to illustrate the need for clean drinking water in Nigeria. Acknowledgement: The photo was taken by Genuine Ernest Bishop Ahiabli, to show the dire need for clean drinking water in the village of Akpatoeme in the Ketu North Municipality In Ghana.
