Most of us have never had to think twice about the possibility of not having clean drinking water. But the reality is, 800 million people on this planet do not have that luxury. Water travels the world to find inspiring organizations who are providing long-lasting water and sanitation services, and then we fund their most successful programs. Their goal isn't just to get water flowing, but to make sure it flows for many years. By supporting their partners, the sustainability of the water projects will increase and will ultimately be more efficient. Some of the solutions include hand dug wells, Water Purification Systems, and Filters. Bringing clean water to people looks different in each country. Water sources, terrain, and population all play a part in determining what technology is required to serve people well, but there's a solution to everything. Water scarcity, poverty and political stability influence where Charity: Water works. So far, they have brought clean and safe drinking water to 25 countries around the globe. Why focus on water? Clean water can be a positive vehicle for women and children to build education and income. Not only can healthy drinking water provide help for families, but it can also save lives. Diseases from unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war. Children are especially vulnerable, as their bodies aren't strong enough to fight diarrhea, dysentery and other illnesses.
