At 28 years old, Scott Harrison’s nights revolved around partying with models in a blur of drugs and alcohol. Morally bankrupt and physically exhausted, Harrison knew something was missing: hope. Desperate for a drastic change, Scott set sail to serve the vulnerable on a hospital ship in West Africa.
There, he witnessed the water crisis for the first time. Women and children lost hours every day on their grueling walks for water. People drank dirty water from the same swamps, rivers, or ponds as animals. And people were regularly sick—or even died—from waterborne diseases.
Scott founded charity: water shortly after, with the belief that everyone deserves access to clean water and the opportunities it brings. 15 years later, with the help of more than 1 million supporters worldwide, we have provided over 14.7 million people with clean, safe drinking water. And we’re closer than ever to ending the water crisis.
And we can give you that opportunity. 703 million people in the world are drinking dirty water. When you donate to charity: water, you’re investing in the hopes and dreams of families around the world. Families are healthier. Children are able to attend school full-time. Women can start a business or simply rest. Fathers have enough water for their crops and livestock. Communities thrive. That’s the power of your generosity.
We also make a bold promise to you: 100% of your donation will go directly to funding clean water projects. And we’ll share photos and GPS coordinates for every single project you support.
In 2009, Helen’s community was given life-changing access to clean water. Now, development thrives.
Your donation will give one person life-saving access to clean water and the opportunity it brings.Give Now
