Bangladesh

97% of the people of Bangladesh have access to water and only 40% percent have proper sanitation. With a staggering 60% of the population has to endure unsafe drinking water which places the nation extreme danger.

Bangladesh is the most densely populated country in the world, as well as one of the poorest. 150 million people are crowded onto low-lying land where annual monsoon floods contaminate water sources and leave millions with appalling sanitary conditions. Agriculture does not provide enough jobs with 75% of the population living in the countryside. The average annual income is only $380, and malnutrition and illiteracy are widespread.
