How Lucky are We!

I have been reading some statistics about clean water and effective santitation which I think the majority of us take for granted.   An article published in the March 2013 edition of the Master Plumber Magazine detailed the following stats:-

1.1 billion people in the world do not have access to safe water supplies

2.6 billion people do not have effective sanitation systems and as a result 3.1 million children die of diseases that could have been avoided.

So next time you see a Plumber – thank him for ensuring we have a safe and efficient water supply.
