Rising Concern for Developing Nations

60% of deaths in children under the age of 5 are from waterborne illnesses, like cholera and typhoid. In addition, many girls are burdened with fetching water, and this causes them to miss school, thus decreasing their lifetime earning potential. This in turn causes a trend of downward cycle of poverty.
