Water is crucial to human survival and well-being. The micronutrients in water contribute to nutritional security, water is important for cleaning food as well as for personal hygiene. However, water can easily become contaminated through e.g. use of poor or non-existent sanitation infrastructure. If present in drinking water, pathogens from human faeces can cause diseases, such as diarrhea and intestinal infections, which reduce the body’s ability to absorb essential nutrients from food, leading to undernutrition. Safe water, sanitation and hygiene are therefore considered essential to SSLLP vision and mission,to take responsibility and actively engage in realization of their rights to WASH
