Water is life. But when water is unsafe and sanitation non-existent, water can kill. Globally, waterborne illnesses are a leading cause of death for children under five, killing nearly 1,000 children every day.
UNICEF works in more than 100 countries to improve access to safe water and sanitation facilities. Whether by delivering safe water after a disaster or promoting safe hygiene practices in schools and communities, UNICEF is on the ground helping children in need.
Students part of the UNICEF chapter at Cherokee Trail High School, Colorado, are hoping to raise support and funds for places like Yemen, Iraq, or Vietnam where children have to walk for more than 8 hours a day to acquire water.
Thus, we are holding this September 22, 2018 a Walk for Water. Everyone is welcome!! If you can't make it, please donate directly to our cause here. Thank you.
