According to Project Partner, having 360 million people struggling with the poverty crisis, about 95 million people in rural China still lack access to clean water and about 2.5 billion people do not have access to adequate sanitation. Because of this, over 6 million losses of lives are reported due to water-borne diseases and disasters. All of these happen due to political and socioeconomic challenges that the country and its people continue to deal with in the present.
