Clean Water Should Be a Basic Right #WaterAid #GlobalTeamof200
Worldwide, however, 800 million people do not have the same luxury we do and as a result, two thousand children die every day from easily prevented diarrheal diseases from contaminated waters. Millions of women are unable to work because they spend so much time collecting water and caring for sick children.
In our world of rich resources, these statistics are staggering, and in my opinion, unacceptable. Access to healthy, clean, safe water should be a basic right for every person on earth.
There are many ways we can conserve our precious water resources through healthy eco-friendly practices, but there's a lot more that can be done to directly impact the lives of those suffering now with lack of access to safe water.
One organization is working hard to make a difference and they could use your support. WaterAid is transforming lives by helping the world’s poorest people gain access to safe water and sanitation. Together with local organizations, communities and individuals, WaterAid uses affordable and locally appropriate solutions to provide safe water, effective sanitation and hygiene education to people in developing countries.
