Why Water?

There is no life without water

One in every six people live in areas without access to clean water, resulting in poor health and even death. Children are especially vulnerable to the consequences of unsafe water. Common symptoms from untreated water, such as diarrhea, often result in death. Nine out of ten of those deaths could have been prevented through clean water education and water filtration.

The United Nations has determined that clean water improves both health and population pressures: as infant mortality rates drop, women have fewer children, and a cycle of education and prosperity replaces disease and poverty.
