CLEAN WATER: A LUXURY FOR SOME
Clean water is a necessity of life, a basic human right, but 700 million people in 43 countries currently lack it. This includes millions in sub-Saharan Africa who are collecting unsafe water from lakes, rivers, and ponds on a daily basis. Many of them also spend up to six hours a day obtaining this water, forcing them to face danger and extreme weather conditions. Due to Africa’s lack of access to clean water, millions are suffering greatly from poor health and poverty.
More than 2 billion people drink contaminated water, putting them at risk for deadly diseases like cholera, dysentery and typhoid. Children are especially at risk to these illnesses, which cause half of all deaths of children under 5.
Without accessible water, people must travel long distances to fetch water, taking time away from more productive uses of time. A lack of clean water also limits agriculture, meaning communities cannot grow or sell food.
Young girls and women are usually tasked with fetching water. This results in fewer women attending school and completing their education, while also putting them at greater risk for physical injuries and gender-based violence.
A single drop makes a small, seemingly insignificant, impact. But when it hits the surface, tiny ripples form. Slowly, these ripples grow bigger and the whole surface begins to change.
Clean water puts students in the classroom, improves their studies, and allows teachers to thoroughly cover curriculum, all leading to more effective learning.lets help them to reach clean water.
Opening a water well truly changes and saves lives. Together we can do our part to end the clean water crisis and change the future of a community of people–mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, the elderly, infants, and the infirm. Let’s do our part to save a life today.
One water well provides fresh, useable water to a village of up to 2,000 people. This minimizes the likelihood of contracting deadly water-borne diseases such as typhoid, cholera, and dysentery. Furthermore, it improves overall well-being, boosts the economy, education, and benefits agriculture
The emergency solution adopted by our organization is installing water wells with hand pumps in regions with little or no access to drinking water. In most countries with no permanent fresh surface water, it is possible to provide access to clean water by utilizing underground water resources
To this day, Embrace Relief Foundation has opened over 610 water wells in several countries, providing more than 610,000 people with access to clean water and improving their health and living conditions.Start a Clean Water Project Today! Donate for Clean Water Today! Today!
