13 Countries with Least Access to Clean Water

So what are the countries with least access to clean water? Insider Monkey has recently published an interesting article about this topic. Drink a lot of water! – we are said.  As for me, I have a well in my garden so I drink water from it. It’s clear tastes well and I have it checked regularly by the authorities. So I rarely buy bottled water. I do this because I don’t like producing unnecessary litter and try to save our globe. Unfortunately there are lots of countries where clean water is an urgent and essential problem, where people can hardly have enough clean water, whici is the fountain of life of every living creatures.

Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked three countries with least access to clean water.

The first one is Eritrea. Not only does almost half of population of Eritrea not receive clean water, but the government does not even proffer the citizens basic human rights. According to Human Rights Watch, Eritrea is one of the worst countries in the world when it comes to human rights violation, with random arrests, lack of religious tolerance and unfair treatment in general. In fact, the nation has no independent non-governmental organizations since 2001! The next country on our list is One of the few non-African countries on our list, Haiti was all over the news when in 2010, it got hit by a devastating earthquake, which according to different estimates caused the deaths of anywhere between 100,000 to 316,000 people! Maybe the destruction caused by the earthquake is the reason that the percentage of the population using improved drinking water sources actually reduced in the nation from 60.8% in 2000 to 57.7% in 2015. At last, bit not leas we should mention Wthiopia, which is not surprising I suppose. Ethiopia shares a lot more with Eritrea than merely a border. This African nation suffers from human rights violations as well just like its neighbor. Forced marriages are also quite the norm there. In 2003 (last available statistics), 69% of marriages in the nation was a result of abduction and coercion. A disgusting fact if ever I heard one.
