Naïade Projects

For millions of people a shortage of clean drinking water is a reality they must face every day.  Sometimes they simply do not have enough, in other cases the available water is contaminated. In developing countries, poor water quality is the leading cause of health problems. Eighty percent of all illnesses in developing countries are caused by polluted water. It is estimated that 2 million people die from these illnesses every year.
