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.
Water is one of the most precious things on earth; for without it we can’t live. While it can be abundant, not all people can have access to clean, potable drinking water especially in poor nations. Having safe water and maintaining our overall wellbeing go hand in hand. Unfortunately for many people in Africa and some Asian countries, clean water is scarce. Countries all over the world have expressed the utmost importance of having access to safe water being a top factor of our survival.
That’s why it is truly miserable if people can’t have access to clean tap water for their various household and personal uses. And more importantly, we know how easily people can get sick with fatal diseases by simply drinking unsafe or contaminated water.
Anyone from poor countries (without access to safe water) can get sick of any of these diseases: diarrhea, worm infestation, and trachoma. Who knows, there could be other water-borne health conditions that unsafe water can do and that can cause death to any infected individual.
Now the globalized world has even posed more threat to people’s access to potable fresh water. While it brought progress, industrialization unfortunately has also polluted our water resources. Unless proper garbage and waste regulation is implemented by all governments across the globe, we can only expect the worst consequences.
As you can read in The succes of microloans, the fruits of these programs are now beginning to blossom.
The poor who were suffering greatly and were deprived off their basic human rights like food, shelter and clothing can now provide for themselves. Before, they were suffering from mal-nutrition and other vitamin deficiencies, the children in Africa were dying of hunger because their families couldn’t make both ends meet.
Of course, these things still happen, but microloans have given many families a better life. They now earn enough to afford three meals a day, cover their bodies with adequate clothing and shelter themselves under a roof.
These loans are issued to people who are in desperate need of money, those who were losing the race to survival. And what’s new, microloans are even given out to women who want to start small at-home industries and play their part in supporting the family.
Everybody can now start a business or make the already existing ones flourish. A farmer may use the money to buy new tools, a fruit vendor might use it to buy a permanent shop. In one way or the other, these loans are helping those in need, world wide.
