EVENT: The Future of Water

THE STORY:

“Water is medicine.”

~ Karen Nilsen, M.D.

 

A United Nations resolution of July 2010 has recognized “the right to safe and clean drinking water and sanitation as a human right that is essential for the full enjoyment of life” and 50 countries now acknowledge this right to water either through their constitution or other legal instrument.

 

Water is the essence of life and the rising supply and demand imbalance is a concern everywhere across the globe. According to the United Nations (UNESCO), nearly 1 billion people today do not have access to clean water.

 

Clean water also plays a huge role in Global Health. Nearly one in every five child deaths globally—around 1·5 million a year—is due to diarrhea, which kills more children than AIDS, malaria, and measles combined. The cure for this tremendous burden is very simple – to provide children with clean and safe drinking water. That is exactly what Splash is doing across China, Cambodia, Ethiopia, Vietnam, Nepal and Thailand.

In a recent (2012) study of tap water in schools in Calcutta, India, Splash found that 71% of water (directly from the schools' faucets) tested positively for total coliform and 55% tested positively for E.coli. This is water in schools (!) just to be clear.

For decades now, there have been noble intentions and efforts in global water relief. But children have been left in the margins. The shape of the water crisis is different for kids.

The Future of Water includes a laser focus on kids, in urban areas, in extreme poverty. It affects girls becoming women, kids being kids, and young people staying in school (rather than missing out on education due to stomach bugs).

The Future of Water includes us all. We can make a huge difference, right away, for years to come. Please donate generously to this wonderful cause.
