Pure drinking water is the right of every living individual, yet only a few are granted access to it. Water is essential; it is one of human’s basic needs to survive. It is apparent that lack of water can cause several life-threatening diseases, even death. It is therefore sad to know that around the world, there are millions of people not privileged enough to have access to clean drinking water. There are many waterborne diseases caused by impure water intake, and these include amoebiasis, cholera, typhoid fever, and salmonellosis among others. It can also lead to a condition called jaundice. LifeStraw is an impressive invention that purifies even the dirtiest water to make it potable.
