The Need for Water
Despite the fundamental role of water for human health, survival, and development, every one out of nine people do not have access to clean water today. 2.5 billion people do not have access to adequate sanitation, and every minute a child dies from a water-related disease.
840,000 people die every year from water related diseases. 620,000 of them are children under the age of 5.
More than 30 different types of bacteria and viruses live in contaminated waters sources used regularly by people who don’t have access to other source of water.

Let's give clean water to people in need
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 of the countries with no permanent fresh surface water, it is possible to provide access to clean water by utilizing underground water resources. To this day, our organization has opened over 270 water wells in several countries, providing approximately 250,000 people with access to clean water and improving their health and living conditions.Donate for Clean Water Today!
