Doylestown, PA (PRWEB) July 19, 2012
In the video released this week, the nonprofit aims to bring awareness to a problem that affects more than 10% of the world’s population. Currently, 780 million people don’t have access to clean drinking water. Water contaminants cause both immediate and chronic health effects such as diarrhea, E. Coli, salmonella, cholera, and hepatitis A.
A cholera epidemic has intensified in Haiti in the past few months. Since 2010, Cholera has killed 7,000 people and sickened over half a million.
The Haitians exposed to this danger certainly did not choose their situation. The circumstances we are born into are ultimately left to chance. Poverty Resolutions illustrates this element of luck, or lack thereof, with a coin toss. The winners get to drink filtered, bottled water. The losers must drink directly from the stream contaminated with dirt and bacteria.
