The water crisis.
800 million people on our planet lack access to safe, clean drinking water. That's one in nine of us. 80% of all disease is attributable to the lack of water and basic sanitation. Unsafe water claims more lives each year than war. Learn more >
How you can help.
You can help us build wells. A freshwater well costs $5,000 and can serve an average of 250 people with clean, safe drinking water for 20 years. Just $20 serves one person with clean, safe drinking water. Donate >
