Even if you don’t read TMZ or People magazine, you may have heard that actor Matt Damon isn’t using the toilet until the World Water crisis is solved.
No doubt Damon has visited the bathroom dozens of times since announcing his “strike.” But through humor, he called attention to a serious problem that affects billions of people and likely prompted more than a few people to ask “what water crisis?”
This is the water crisis Damon is referring to:
- 780 million people on Earth lack access to clean water
- 2.5 billion people don’t have a toilet
- 3.4 million people die each year from water, sanitation, and hygiene-related causes.
- Every 20 seconds, a child dies from a water-related illness
