Billions throughout the world lack access to clean water and sanitation. Many suffer from water related diseases such as malnutrition. Malnutrition is a major health problem, especially in developing countries. Both malnutrition and inadequate water supply and sanitation are linked to poverty. The impact of repeated or persistent diarrhoea and the effect of malnutrition on susceptibility to infectious diarrhoea are reinforcing elements of the same vicious circle, especially amongst children in developing countries. In rural villages in Cambodia, there is no piped water and many villagers rely on wells to provide clean water. Wells are considered an essential necessity to these rural villagers. A visitor once commented why the children are so dirty without realising there is no water for them to bathe! Water is not available by just turning a tap but by carrying heavy buckets over a long distance.
