Clean Water for All
1.8 billion. That’s how many people drink dirty water each day. Imagine walking miles each day to carry water back to your family. Imagine that this hard-earned water also made your family sick. A $2 donation might not sound like much but that amount equals a two month supply of clean water for one person in these regions of the world. This is done through the amazing work of Healing Water International – a non-profit organization that partners with local communities to provide safe water and health and hygiene education.
Why is work so important? Because affordable, state-of-the-art water filtration systems transform dirty water into safe water and helps turn thirsting regions into thriving ones. The donation accomplishes the following:
- Create a 12% increase in girls’ school attendance by reducing time spent traveling to a water source by 15-30 minutes that occurs at least once per day.
- Slash the 443 million school days lost each year due to water-related disease.
- Help reduce poor water and sanitation conditions that are linked to nearly 80% of illness in developing nations. These illnesses include Polio, Malaria, Cholera, Dengue, and Typhoid, many of which are deadly without proper treatment.
