In Africa alone, one out of every five deaths for children under five is due to complications from unclean water, including diseases like cholera. The unsafe water can also lead to the infectious eye disease trachoma. This unsafe water is also used to irrigate crops, leading to poor harvests and the transmission of parasites. These issues are compounded by eyesight problems, which many times are caused by unclean water. Without proper care, these easily treatable conditions become nightmares for those affected, taking away their very ability to function. Through the Vision 2020 Project, these issues will be combated and lead to improved education, vastly improved health conditions and ideal food security.
