Water and Sanitation

ACCESS TO SAFE DRINKING WATER AND SANITATION IS A HUMAN RIGHT

Resolution 16/2 —Human Rights Council
United Nations 2010

Over 10 billion people around the world do not have access to drinking water and 3.6 billion people do not have access to a toilet. Unsafe water, and lack of sanitation is responsible for the deaths of around 400,000 children under the age of five each year—that’s 1,000 every day.

So – DATUM ensures clean drinking water and safe toilets are provided on all its projects
