A $25 donation helps provide safe water for one person in a developing country. 1 in 10 people do not have access to clean water. Every 90 seconds, a child dies from a water-related disease. This gift provides access to safe water for one person. A foundational element of life, water is used daily for cooking, cleaning and drinking. Dirty water harbors parasites and diseases that can cause debilitating ailments, developmental problems, and even death. In addition to the dangers of drinking dirty water, families must often walk many miles to the nearest water source, subjecting them to the elements, assault, and harassment. With safe water, you are both protecting a child from life-threatening diseases and allowing that child to go to school, to dream and reach his or her full potential. For every $1 invested in water and sanitation, an average of $4 is returned in increased productivity.
