Challenge

Every day, nearly 4,000 children die as a result of drinking unsafe water. Every 22 seconds a child perishes from waterborne diseases such as typhoid, cholera, and dysentery. Six million people are blind as a result of contaminated water and bacteria. Clean water can cut a community's child mortality rate in half. It means food for families whose crops are failing due to drought. It saves livestock. It gives parents a powerful way to improve the health, hygiene, and well-being of their children.

Solution

Your gift will help us dig wells to bring safe, clean water to thousands. You can also help provide purification equipment to treat contaminated water, and water storage containers to save fresh rainwater for later use.

Long-Term Impact

No other gift produces a more dramatic effect on life than clean water and sanitation. You can help wash away suffering by providing access to one of life's most precious resources. Give now - for these children, every minute counts.
