One environmental problem that causes ill health, accidents, crises disasters within South African communities or globally is Sanitation. Where there is no safe water supply, people either walk long distances in search of water, collect it from polluted sources such as factory outflows or unprotected wells, or buy jerry cans of water, often of dubious quality, from vendors at vastly inflated prices.

Often poor families pay much more per litre than the better off, who can secure piped connections or afford to invest in their own wells. For example the poorest people from Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, spend an average of 10% of their income on water from vendors.
