Scientists and UNICEF bring clean water to Bangladesh villagersListen /
For most of the year, the water in Bangladesh is undrinkable or even suitable for crops, according to the UN Children's Fund (UNICEF).
The agency reports that when it is not raining, rivers in the coastal region become full of sea water and the ground water is also heavily saline.
UNICEF has teamed up with scientists from the country and the Netherlands to find a solution.
