A gift of life through clean water!

Globally, 844 million people lack access to safe water and 2.3 billion people don’t have a toilet. A lack of access to safe water or sanitation contributes to the spread of infections and water borne disease, killing nearly 1 million people each year. It also affects the physical well-being of women and children who have no choice but to carry heavy vessels long distances.

Safe drinking water is critical to the development of a healthy child. It means kids won’t experience water-borne illnesses like typhoid. Diarrhea is one of the top three leading causes of child death and this is often triggered from consuming unclean water. Further, every 2 minutes a child dies from a water-borne disease. Whether they are consuming contaminated water or suffering from dehydration due to diarrhea, a lack of access to safe water is responsible. https://water.org/our-impact/water-crisis/health-crisis/
