4 MILLION MALAWIANS LACK ACCESS TO SAFE DRINKING WATER

THE HARD TRUTH
4,000,000 Malawians lack adequate access to safe drinking water
6% Number of Malawians that have access to improved sanitation
18% Number of infant deaths caused by waterborne diseases
19% Number of Malawians who defecate openly
Lack of access to clean potable water in Malawi is a life-threatening problem. Although almost 33% of the country is comprised of a fresh water lake, Malawians lack access to fresh clean drinking water. Lack of sanitation, excessive water waste, and continued soil erosion due to the wanton deforestation, has led to massive water shortages.
