Mali is a landlocked country with vast deserts and a long dry-season where many people lack access to clean water and sanitation. It's one of the poorest countries in the world and has both a high risk of infectious disease and the world’s seventh highest infant mortality rate, at 77.6 deaths per 1000 live births.

For families in Mali, the first step out of poverty begins with clean water.
