Transcript of Niger Water

Climate Geography Health Niger has one of the highest infant mortality rates in the world The average life span is 46 years old. 1 in 8 children under 5 will possibly die within the next month without our help. There are about 15 million people in Niger. 1/4 of the population suffer from Bilharzia, an infection spread by swimming or bathing in water contaminated with urine and feces. "We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop."
~ Mother Theresa Diarrhea affects more than 40% of boys and girls in Niger
Several years of drought brought on the 2005 food crisis Lack of rainfall hurts Niger's economy because it affects the agriculture which is what the economy is mainly based on. Each year less than 7 inches of rain falls in the mountains The average fertility rate per woman is 7.8 children per woman! Rain fall has decreased 20 to 50 percent in the last 30 years 2/3 of Niger is desert and mountains. Only 1/3 is savannah. Niger is landlocked There are no lakes except for part of
Lake Chad The few rivers have to be shared with neighboring countries There is an estimated 2.5 billion cubic meters of renewable water underground. Only 20% is currently exploited. Because of bad health, geography, and climate, then Niger needs clean water to enhance their quality of life and prosper Niger has the lowest number of wells and toilets per capita in the world. 7 million out of the 15 million people of Niger have some type of malnutrition. Niger is mainly desert that lacks good water. There are fairly oftern floods that don't help because they destroy things but most of the water isn't useable. Other than Lake Chad, most lakes dry up seasonally due to the many droughts, dry seasons, and human use of the water. This is what the LifeStraws could be used for to provide the people of Niger, clean water, like these child here are recieving.
