15 million people in Tanzania live off of less than $1 a day. Most people die before the age of 50. A huge part of the population is forced to use contaminated rivers as a water source, leading to a massive amount of water-borne disease. Tanzania is facing a clean water crisis that affects millions of people in the country. According to estimates, over 30% of the population does not have access to clean drinking water, and many people are forced to rely on unsafe sources such as shallow wells or contaminated rivers. The lack of clean water in Tanzania has serious consequences for the health and well-being of the population, as it can lead to waterborne diseases and other illnesses. The problem is compounded by the fact that the country has limited infrastructure in place to provide clean water to its citizens, and many rural areas are particularly hard-hit by the crisis. The clean water crisis in Tanzania is a complex problem that requires a multi-faceted approach, including the development of new water sources, the construction of water treatment facilities, and the implementation of education and awareness programs to promote proper water management. Our partners in Tanzania are distributing Biosand filters to affected villages every month to attempt to meet the need for clean water.
