"In India between 1200-1600 children under age of 5 perish every day due to lack of clean water, sanitation, hygiene.... Victims of violence are fewer than those dying from lack of clean water, sanitation, hygiene....300Million women wait til night to heed the call of nature--so they are not drinking or eating in the daytime lest that makes them need to go."
