WATER GIVES LIFE
Water should give life, not take it. Dirty, disease ridden water robs a child of more than the time it takes to collect it. It can steal their education. Their health. Even their life!
Every day nearly 1,000 children younger than 5 years old die from diarrhea caused by contaminated water, poor sanitation and unsafe hygiene practices. Women and children in sub-Saharan Africa spend over 20 million hours collecting water every day.
