Water: A privilege that we took for granted

Water wastage seems like a small issue but most people don’t realize how much they actually waste per day. When things comes to water, most of us don’t actually pay much attention about it as 70% of the Earth is covered in water, so why should we worry?

The thing is most of us don’t know that out of 70% only 2% of the planet’s water is fresh and out of that 2%, 1.6% is locked in polar ice caps and glaciers which left us with only 0.4% to survive on and the worst part is that we have 7 billion people sharing that 0.4% fresh water but not equally.

Out of 7 billion people, 2.6 billion people don’t have access to portable water. According to the statistics every year approximately 3.6 million people die from a water related disease, in every 15 seconds a child dies from water related diseases which makes it a total of 6000 children each day and that’s not all 1 out of 6 people don’t have access to water sanitation, every 3rd women in Africa spend a total of 200 million hours collecting it.

The average American uses 2000 gallons of water everyday but the average Afric each day, difference here in digits clearly shows how much unequal distribution of water is there. Africans aren’t the only one whose facing water crisis most of the countries are facing the same issue around the globe.

Around 700 million people in 43 countries suffer from water scarcity. According to arizona.edu Yemen, Libya, Jordan, Western Sahara and Djibouti are the five countries with the greatest water scarcity issues and according to the current scenario, in coming years these countries could completely run extremely short or out of portable water.

According to the survey made by the World Bank predicts that by 2025, two third of the global population will run short of fresh drinking water and 1.8 billion people will be living in countries or regions with absolute water scarcity.

Diarrhea killed more children in the last decade, nearly 2 million a year in developing countries, than all armed conflicts since the 2nd World War. Dirty water kills more children than war, malaria, HIV/AIDS and traffic accidents combined.

80 of China‚ major rivers are so degraded that they no longer support aquatic life, 90 percent of all groundwater systems under major cities in China are contaminated, 75 percent of India‚ rivers and lakes are so polluted that they should not be used for drinking or bathing, 90 percent of wastewater in developing countries is discharged into rivers and streams without any treatment all these facts are more than enough to act as soon as possible about this concern otherwise time will come when it would become nearly impossible to get things back to normal.
