Clean drinking water can effectively improve public health, and the physiological hygiene of women, prevent children from dysentery and typhoid fever, and prevent the spread of the global Covid-19 epidemic.

In July 2010, the United Nations proposed that everyone has the right to adequate water resources for personal and family use (50 to 100L per person a day). Water resources must be safe, affordable (the cost of water should not exceed 3% of household income), and easy to access (water sources must be within 1 km around the residence, and the water collection time should not exceed 30 minutes).Support Us
