The numbers are staggering:
About 18,000 children under the age of 5 die each day from mostly preventable diseases, the majority live in the poorest regions of the world
3.4 million die of water-related diseases every year. Unsafe water and lack of sanitation cause 80% of sicknesses, killing more people every year than all forms of violence, including war.
Nearly 1 billion people entered the 21st century unable to read a book or sign their names.
