Living With Clean Water
WATER IS THE MOST BASIC OF ALL HUMAN NECESSITIES. IT MAKES ALL OTHER PROGRESS POSSIBLE, YET OVER 1 BILLION PEOPLE WORLDWIDE CURRENTLY LACK ACCESS TO SAFE, CLEAN DRINKING WATER.
An estimated 4,000 people die every day as a direct result of contaminated water with children being the hardest hit. Polluted drinking water claims more lives than all forms of violence combined including war, and claims the lives of more children than AIDS, malaria, and measles combined. Each day, women and children walk miles to collect water that is so contaminated it will kill 25% of her family. The countless hours spent collecting water is time not spent in school, often causing girls to fall behind and eventually drop out.

IHELP SOLVES THIS PROBLEM BY PROVIDING LIFETIME ACCESS TO CLEAN WATER FOR ENTIRE COMMUNITIES IN THE MOST REMOTE VILLAGES IN THE WORLD THROUGH A COMBINATION OF COST EFFECTIVE AND EFFICIENT BOREHOLES AND IN-HOME WATER FILTERS.
Thousands die every day as a direct result of contaminated water and women and girls walk an average of 4+ miles per day to collect water that is so dirty, she knows it will kill 25% of her family. The same filthy water they walk miles to access is a breeding ground for insects, is bathing and laundry water for humans, and is filled with human and animal waste. Time spent fetching water by these women and children is time not spent attending school or in income generating activities. Not only does clean water save lives, it makes all other necessities possible – food, education, and economic growth. Without clean water, progress is not possible. The best part is that there is a simple solution. We can help!!!
