The world is progressing at an unbelievable rate, yet the health issues of a third of the world’s population remain un-addressed. About 85% of the world’s population does not have access to a proper functioning toilet. Water borne diseases are spreading like wild fire. According to a report, every year more children die of diarrhoea than of AIDS.

The lack of toilets is more prominent in rural areas than urban areas, yet they affect all of them likewise. Poor sanitation is a cause that people are suffering from diseases which were unheard of decades ago. This is a crisis, faced by every country, but the governments are turning a blind eye to them despite the fact that these diseases are the major cause behind the hospitals being over crowded.

Access to proper sanitary conditions is a basic right of every human being no matter rich or poor. The third world countries are suffering the most, there is no concept of toilets in the villages whatsoever, causing poor health conditions.

Those of us who have access to a proper toilet will be disgusted by the sight of people excreting waste in open. This unattended waste does more harm than a drone attack would.

Poverty is instigated by the lack of the right resources, lack of access to markets, hospitalisation and an ignorance of the current trends and requirements. But these days we have cell phones that help the poor to stay in touch with the current trends and give them a better shot at moving with the world, and to benefit from its progress.

Living in a third world country should not hamper an individual from making the best of his abilities. Cell phones are now less expensive than they have ever been, and the United Nations have taken huge steps in this respect.

The United Nations millennium villages project provided cell phones to villages across 10 poor South African countries and then noticed that with the increase in cell phone usage the country’s GDP increased. This boom in the mobile industry has taken the world to the next level. The poor and the rich alike, are benefiting from this ingenious invention.
