PeriodClean Water in Sub-Saharan AfricaThe sub-Saharan region of Africa has and is experiencing a lack of clean drinkingwater. About 2.6 billion people lack clean drinking water and 1.1 billion people have noaccess to any type of improving the water source. Without clean drinkable water peoplehave a higher risk of obtaining diseases and any infections or viruses from contaminatedwater. Children get affected greatly with unclean waters since diarrhea diseases, is one of the leading causes of they’re death. Madagascar sees that in order to maintain water cleanfor our people is very expensive and the machinery is also very costly. Water is veryessential to all humans and we should come together and join forces to allow the sub-Saharan people crystal clear water.Madagascar is one of the affected countries without clean drinking water.Madagascar is supported by the United States Agency of International Developmentwhich is a program that helps with countries that don’t have clean drinking water. Eventhough Madagascar also suffers with the water problem; Madagascar would like toreunite with our neighbors to find a solution that would help us achieve clean water for our people. Madagascar is trying to seek ways to improve the sanitation of water for our people.Some of the solutions that Madagascar would like to see be taken are animprovement of programs with clean water, an evaluation of the land to see how pipescould be put underground to reduce evaporation and how can there be clean runningwater at all times without using heavy machinery to clean it. Also Madagascar thinks thatthere should be some kind of development to where the water can be cleaned at homewithout having to travel to water ways and that everybody needs to use the water thatthey may have in the surrounding areas to clean it.
