•Potable water. Millions of Nigerians and Africans lack access to it.

Statistics published by international development organisation WaterAid show that 695 million people out of the 1.2 billion total population of Africa are surviving without basic sanitation and 395 million people are without clean water. With Africa’s population projected to be 2.2 billion by 2030, only 32% of Sub-Saharan Africans will have access to sanitation by 2030.

According to WASHwatch, the collaborative monitoring platform set up by WaterAid, 57 million people in Nigeria don’t have access to safe water, over 130 million people don’t have access to adequate sanitation which is two third of the population and around 45,000 children under five years old die every year from diarrhea caused by unsafe water and poor sanitation.

“Water saving taps and showers and water saving flush systems are two of the main ways that everyday citizens can contribute to protecting the environment, and sustainability is one of the core values and a top priority in the creation of every GROHE product for bathrooms and from the design to development stages,” says Mohammed Ataya, Vice President of GROHE Egypt, North and West Africa.

Mohammed Ataya adds that “Quality materials, first-class design and advanced engineering all play an important role in saving water. For example, GROHE EcoJoy hand showers feature either an integrated flow limiter, or an Eco button or spray dimmer which lets you chooses when to reduce the water flow.”

Ataya spoke via a statement by GROHE, a world leading German brand in sanitary fittings, to commemorate this year’s World Earth Day being marked today. This year’s theme for Earth Day is “Environmental and Climate Literacy”.
