Reducing unsafe drinking water risk during disasters

Drinking water is a major problem during disasters and causes health challenges. Contamination of water creates many problems in the post- disaster period. Skin infections, diarrhoeal diseases and stomach problems are the major issues arising due to use of contaminated water during disasters. Use of properly treated and stored water is important to survive natural calamities. The community needs to be informed about the use of safe water during disasters and this warning should be shared with the community in advance in order to reduce the risk of water borne diseases. Due to various reasons, food and water got contaminated during disasters and diarrhoea like diseases affect the community. In this situation children are the most vulnerable and need the most attention, emphasizes the message of this episode.
