Everyone knows that going out for drinks can be the highlight of our week, but for 1 out of every 8 people in the world getting a clean drink of water is anything but fun. Women and children brave unspeakable dangers collecting water in many parts of the developing world. Millions of people every year die from water-born diseases and many more suffer physical and mental limitations due to malnutrition caused by these diseases. You can help communities lift themselves out of poverty simply by improving access to clean water and sanitation services. Join Water for People in helping communities become self-sufficient and water independent, so the next time you drink to something - drink to water!
