Clean water and indoor plumbing is something many of us take for granted but it is not that way for everyone. Many don’t have access to it and have to be very careful so they don’t get sick. Water contamination is a large cause of sickness because it can carry so many diseases. This was a major cause of fatalities before indoor plumbing was more common.

Key Takeaways:

  • Water in the U.S. is a cheap commodity that is taken for granted. That is not the case in many parts of the world. Not many has access to clean water and indoor plumbing
  • In Ghana men cannot support women to fetch water for home since they go out to earn for the family. men leave early in the morning for their jobs. So the job of fetching the water is left to the women and children.
  • Eduucating the masses about the need to drink clean water is very essential and need of a water treatment plant is very much required to countries like Ghana
