INTRO

Water is essential for all of us to maintain body function, and it is a crucial part of our everyday lives.  Without water, we cannot survive. People living below the poverty line in rural Africa share untreated water with animals, thus creating high risks of contracting diseases. As a result, millions of children's lives are threatened. Many health centers in rural areas are also incapable of providing comprehensive medical care without clean water.
