You might not believe it, but while two-thirds of the Earth is covered by water, only 3% of it actually is drinkable. This means that roughly 1 billion people are unable to find the clean drinking water they need to survive.

This culminates in the heartbreaking stat that over 3 million people die yearly from water-related diseases.
