Lack of access to safe drinking water contributes to the staggering burden of diarrheal diseases worldwide, particularly affecting the young and the poor. Nearly one in five child deaths – about 1.5 million each year – is due to diarrhea. Diarrhea kills more young children than AIDS, malaria and measles combined. Drinking contaminated water also leads to reduced personal productive time, with widespread economic effects. Clean drinking water for all at the lowest price, has been the key point for the developing of the Villagepump 500. Now more than 300 units of Villagepump 500 are installed world wide, providing thousands of people with clean, safe drinking water. And thus improving not only the health of thousand people but also saving fire wood and avoiding time consuming search for clean water. Find below some references.
