Did you know that 1.4 million children are dying from water-related diseases every year? And a United Nations report, released today, found that polluted water kills more people than war does. Clean water is essential for life, but one in eight of the world's population does not have access to it.
World Water Day will take place on March 22, 2010 to raise awareness of the global water crisis, one of the largest public health issues of our time.
