Global Water Crisis

Each year, 3.4 million people, mostly children, die from water-related diseases. While clean water is a basic human right, more than 1 billion people across our world draw their water from unsafe sources. Since water is inextricably connected to health and good health is the essence of development, the lack of access to clean water extends beyond the devastating rippling effects on the human body. Lack of access to clean water limits educational, economic and agricultural opportunities which perpetuates the cycle of poverty.

There is HOPE! Most water related illnesses and deaths can be prevented through simple, inexpensive measures. The average cost to build a well/borehole is $7,500. Each well can supply clean water to a community of over 3,000. That’s $2.50 per person. $2.50 can send a child to school, prevent a woman from being raped, restore economic independence, and even save a life. Every dollar counts! Please consider DONATING
