WHY CLEAN WATER IS NEEDED ?

800 million men, women and children do not have access to clean, safe drinking water. Diseases kill 2.2 million people every year and the majority are children, as their bodies aren't strong enough to fight diarrhea, E-coli and other illnesses. 27,000 children under the age of five die every week. This is a problem we can solve, but only if we work together.


 
 

THE MOST VULNERABLE

Women and their children are the ones who travel for miles every day to collect drinking water for their families. This task takes hours to complete which could be time they spend learning in schools or starting small businesses to help support their families. And the water they carry for miles is not clean. This is why 1.4 million children die every year. 800 million people do not have access to clean drinking water. For $20 you can give clean water, basic sanitation, and hygiene education to one person. please help

 


FOR THE CHILDREN

Children's bodies aren't strong enough to fight waterborne diseases. A clean water project in their village provides safe drinking water to women and children; giving them more time, freedom and incentive to help their families grow to be healthy and productive members of their community.
