Ghana's water and sanitation crisis
In Ghana today the major causes of water pollution includes the following: sewage and waste water, galamsey, and open defecation.
close to six million people (nearly 22 percent) rely on surface water to meet their daily water needs, leaving them vulnerable to water-related illness and disease.
Water shortages in Ghana threaten the lives of millions and an outbreak of sanitary diseases such as cholera and typhoid could be catastrophic.For people in Ghana who don't have access to clean water, we are finding ways to build boreholes to help.
