Many of us have no idea what it's like to be thirsty. We have plenty of water to drink - even the water in our toilets is clean.
But many people around the world don’t have that luxury. 785 million people today do not have access to clean water. And every day, about 1,400 children die from diseases caused by unsafe water and poor sanitation.
It doesn’t have to be that way. There are simple solutions like drilled wells, spring protections and BioSand filters that help provide clean water to communities around the world.
We started this campaign to help charity: water build these types of water projects. Together, the funds we raise will provide clean water to people in need in India, Nepal, Madagascar or Ethiopia.
100% of the money will be used to build clean water projects, and when they’re complete, charity: water will provide us with photos, videos and GPS coordinates so we can stay connected with the communities we have helped serve.
Thank you for supporting our Earth Month 2021 campaign. Together we will show how we care by helping change lives forever!
Diseases from unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war. Your donation will help change that.
