Lack of Political Will Impedes Sanitation Improvements

Leave a comment

“Poor sanitation combines with a lack of safe drinking water and
inadequate hygiene to contribute to the terrible global death toll. Those who survive face diminished chances of living a
healthy and productive existence. Children, especially girls, are
forced to stay out of school, while hygiene-related diseases keep
adults from engaging in productive work.”
~ UN Sec. Gen. Ban Ki-moon

Lack of Political Will Impedes Sanitation Improvements

Poor people in poor countries have nothing to offer. Why spend money on them? They’ll just get “uppity” and want a piece of our pie.

Setting aside the sarcasm, there are viable answers, and they’re being addressed, but slowly and without the backing that every caring person should be willing to provide. Did you give to UNICEF this year? See the article.
