3.58 million people die each year from water related diseases. Unsafe water causes 4 billion cases of diarrhea each year, and results in 2.2 million deaths, mostly of children under five. People in developing countries have never gotten the chance to taste a clean drop of water in their lives, due to not having access to clean drinking water. 2.4 million deaths could be prevented each year if people had access to clean water and adequate sanitation and practiced good hygiene.
