Gospel for Asia (GFA World) unleashed a new report for World Water Day (March 22) revealing that an impending global water crisis could be “much more worrying” than the coronavirus pandemic, with two out of three people on Earth likely to experience water shortages by the middle of the decade.
With numerous major cities around the world on the verge of “running out of drinking water,” the U.S. is by no means excluded from this crisis, as the report notes that 30 million Americans suffer from unsafe drinking water.
A global concern
GFA World founder K.P. Yohannan warns that global forecasts point to safe drinking water – combining with poverty and hunger – is likely to take a far greater toll on the world than what has been experienced through the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Two-thirds of the world’s people could face water shortages by 2025,” Yohannan warned in a press release. “It’s been described as ‘the biggest crisis no one is talking about.'”
In its report, “Water Stress: The Unspoken Global Crisis,” Gospel for Asia (GFA) drew attention to the rising global threat on the annual awareness event, World Water Day, and the faith-based group stresses how this is not just a problem for those living in rural areas or in Third World nations.
