Inaccessibility of clean drinking water is the reason for hundreds of thousands of deaths across the world; mainly due to dehydration and other various diseases. In fact, access to clean drinking water is a basic human right as per the UN charter of human rights. Still, millions of people around the globe are denied this basic right of having access to clean drinking water. It is simply horrifying to imagine that in today’s technological world where humans are racing towards the moon and mars, people are not aware of the importance of clean drinking water.
