Bangladesh's urban slum population is increasing at alarming rates. The enormous quantity of people living in such close quarters causes people living in these slums to have very poor health.

Most people in these slums live on less than US $2 a day, and many live on less than US $1 a day. Acute poverty, overcrowding, poor housing, and unhealthy disposal of waste all play major roles in the water and sanitation crisis in the urban areas of Bangladesh.

The good news is that Water.org is building safe public wells and toilets to improve the slums' conditions. Access to clean water and sanitation has an enormous impact on improving health and livelihood.
