Michael Torres Mr. Melgarejo AP World History June 6, 2018 The Global Water Crisis-Make the prices appropriate for the lower classes There are many problems with both Africa and India’s water. One of the biggest issues is with health in Africa and India’s contaminated water is the tiny worms and bacteria that live within the water.

In Africa, there’s roughly 1 billion people who lives in africa but only 780 million people live without clean drinking water. With that contaminated water roughly four thousand children die every year due to illness caused by unsafe drinking water. For an example in Cape Town, South Africa is a modern city that has been running out of water.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
