According to the United Nations, 2.2 billion people around the world lack access to safe and clean drinking water, as well as clean water for sanitation. This leads to poor hygiene practices that leave an effect on the health of many, especially children. The mortality rate of children lacking clean water is devasting with more than 297,000 children under five dying each year to diseases that are the result of unclean and unsafe water. People who do not have clean drinking water are forced to rely on sources, such as surface water and contaminated well water, resulting in health disasters. Access to clean water and sanitation solutions allows individuals to escape the vicious cycle of poverty and disease, while contributing to a significant increase in their overall health and life expectancy.
Without clean water projects to provide them with this crucial resource, communities are left unable to address one of the most basic human needs. Virtually every element of a community from education to health care depends on a reliable source of safe water. This is why we are engaged in a number of humanitarian water projects worldwide.
Life works around the clock to be able to provide communities all over the world with access to clean drinking water and clean water for sanitation purposes in places like: Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Gaza, Ghana, Iraq, Kenya, Pakistan, Senegal, Sierra Leone and Somalia. When our contributors donate to clean water projects in these areas, their money goes to dig and install new wells, utilize water purification technology, or provide potable water by other means.
Your generous support in the form of a water well donation makes this possible. When you sponsor a water well through us or make another type of donation, you’re providing people with a foundation on which they can build stronger communities. Give the gift of clean water by donating to this cause today!
