“An estimated 801,000 children younger than 5 years of age perish from diarrhea each year, mostly in developing countries. This amounts to 11% of the 7.6 million deaths of children under the age of five and means that about 2,200 children are dying every day as a result of diarrheal diseases.” -

“Sometimes we focus so much on the big numbers, that we fail to see the human tragedies that underlie each statistic. If 90 school buses filled with kindergartners were to crash every day, with no survivors, the world would take notice. But this is precisely what happens every single day because of poor water, sanitation and hygiene.” – Sanjay Wijesekera, global head of UNICEF’s water, sanitation and hygiene programme.
