Never complain about paying for a bottle of water again. Did you know that 4,500 people, men, women, and children, will die today from water-related diseases? Moreover, nearly a billion people on OUR earth don’t have access to clean drinking water. Clean, disease free water is one of the things most of us take for granted big time.
“Ninety percent of the 42,000 deaths that occur every week from unsafe water and unhygienic living conditions are to children under five years old. Many of these diseases are preventable. The UN predicts that one tenth of the global disease burden can be prevented simply by improving water supply and sanitation.”
Charity: water is a non-profit organization bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing nations. 100% of public donations go directly to water projects. All operating costs are covered by a group of private donors so every dollar you give can go to people in need.
In four years, charity: water has raised more than $20 million and funded 2,906 water projects. Their mission is to bring clean and safe drinking water to people in developing nations. “We use 100% of public donations to directly fund sustainable water solutions in areas of greatest need.”
Charity: water funds a variety of water solutions. These solutions include hand-dug wells, drilled wells, rehabilitations, spring protections, rainwater catchments, and Bio-Sand filters. In 2010, charity water expanded their work to Nepal.
I spent hours watching the charity: water videos, witnessing the suffering, and disease. “In Africa alone, people spend 40 billion hours every year just walking for water. Women and children usually bear the burden of water collection, walking miles to the nearest source, which is unprotected and likely to make them sick.”
Jim Hocking has lived in Central African Republic since 1957 when he arrived with his parents. Dedicating his life to offering hope and help to the Bayaka people, he started Integrated Community Development International (ICDI). Now a charity: water local partner, this year for the September Campaign, Charity: water is bringing clean water to the Bayaka people.
