Drinkable water in Africa

The situation with water in Africa is to a certain extent better than with electricity. Only in Chad, less than 40% of the population have access to basic drinking water services. Still, we should strive for >99% in all countries across the world. Just imagine if you had to walk for more than 30 minutes to get a drop of drinkable water. Doesn’t sound that great and for millions of people in Africa, even this would be an improvement.

Here’s the source. As usual, I’m waiting for your comments down below and for your suggestions and requests here.

Access to electricity in Africa

In 2019, the IEA reported fresh numbers on access to electricity in the world and unfortunately it doesn’t look great for millions of people on the African continent. Although a lot of work has been done in recent years and the numbers for sub-Saharan Africa rose from 33% in 2010 to 49.7% in 2019 there is still a long way to go. Just try to imagine what your country would look like if only 1% of had access to electricity.
