Up to one billion people have no access to safe water? This exposes them to not only health but also economical problems. Ironically, there is safe water in abundance right under the feet of these people, or close to their homes. All one has to do is find a way to extract it. But that is where the problem lies, because the people whose work it is to make sure the poor get water use technology that is considered ‘modern’. But because it is expensive, they can’t provide enough water sources to satisfy everyone.
