Abstract

Over 1.3 billion people are living in all types of extreme poverty. Within poverty, there are different areas of damage. Some are only trapped by one issue, while others face multiple. Hunger, conflict, malnutrition, poor healthcare systems, lack of government support, and minimal access to clean water and sanitation deeply affect countries in poverty. There are so many issues and topics within poverty that it's hard to help the countries in need, but looking at one problem at a time can help build over 107 countries back to their former glory. More than 2 billion people do not have access to basic sanitation. Basic sanitation is water that comes from an improved source that doesn't take more than 30 minutes to collect. These people without basic sanitation spend their days walking miles upon miles to find clean drinking water in place of walking to school or work. Not only are people affected in their homes, but hospitals and schools also don't have basic sanitation. Every year, over 850,000 people die from these living conditions alone. Basic sanitation can be achievable with solar-powered machines that transform unclean liquids into clean water, but they cost money that many countries do not have.
