In rural areas, especially in small villages in Africa, water sanitation is the biggest problem. There has been helpful in the past years by improving water resources, but it still a problem in many small villages. It's important to continue improving and developing new ways to provide clean water because it can reduce diseases and mortality. “Globally, an estimated 2,000 children under the age of five die every day from diarrhoeal diseases and of these some 1,800 deaths are linked to water, sanitation, and hygiene” (Unicef).


Suggested Solution:
One of the ways to help improve water sanitation is by first focusing where the problem is, which is in public areas (in particular rural areas), secondly a way to accomplish it. For example creating more innovating sewer systems that can filter water simply, natural, and economical. This could reduce the problem with diseases. For example, toilet waste can maybe be filtered and reused in useful ways. Also, filtering the water in toilets it's an easier way to keep water clean, as the water wouldn't just be disposed into rivers that are used for drinking water.


Children Death Caused by Lack of Water Sanitation:
The main reason for the causes of many children deaths it’s due to the fact of the diseases and infections produced by water not being sanitized, which is mostly in rural areas where many don’t have access to clean water. The infections consist of diseases that are led to mortality. For example, if the children drink contaminated waters it can cause severe diarrhea which then causes dehydration.
