Give Clean Water
There are nearly 1 billion people in our world that lack access to clean water. This causes 1.5 million unsafe drinking water deaths every year and 90 percent are children. Every day 4,500 children die from water-related illnesses. Diarrhea, malaria, typhoid, cholera, worms and parasites, and trachoma just to name a few. With each sip, the number of deaths grow.
The World Water Crisis is one of the largest public health issues of our time. Combine war, malaria, HIV/AIDS, and even traffic accidents . . . dirty water still kills more people. Many women and young children in rural areas in sub-Saharan Africa and other parts of the world must trek as much as 12 miles every day to retrieve water for their families.
Clean water brings an increase in income and food production, as well as improvements in health and education. And all of this leads to sustainable independence and success. By providing clean water, you give the gift of health, hope, and life.
For an average of $15, you can provide one person with clean water.
