Nepal

Nepal is known for its beautiful Himalayan Mountains, deep valleys and richly flowing streams -- but many of its water sources are contaminated by naturally-occurring arsenic.

Half of the kids living here are underweight; 60% of childhood deaths are due to malnutrition, which is exacerbated by dirty drinking water. Sanitation is also a major concern as almost two-thirds of the population lives without toilets.
