March 22 is World Water Day. With two thirds of the earth under water, you might not think we’d need a day to remind us that millions of people don’t have anywhere near enough of it.
On the 22nd, we’ll publish a World Water Day page with stories, video, and other features about the state of water needs. Until then, each day this week, we’re posting one fact about water that you might not be aware of.
Today’s fact: Nearly 50% of people in developing countries currently suffer from a water and sanitation-related disease (dysentery, typhoid fever, cholera, intestinal worms, etc).
