Empowering people with solutions to their desperate need for clean water.
Investing in clean water projects results in lives saved, reduced disease and health-care expense, improved education, and an improved economy.
This is why we decided to be a part of the global clean water initiative. Not only are we saving lives, but we are positively changing communities and countries with an economical and educational impact.
In july 2010, the United Nations general assembly declared access to clean, safe water for consumption a human right.
-Clean Water and Sanitation is a Human Right. UN News Centre, 28 July 2010.
Around 700 million people in 43 countries suffer today from water scarcity. Meaning that there are insufficient water resources to satisfy long-term human requirements.
"Water and Sanitation is one of the primary drivers of public health. I often refer to it as “Health 101”, which means that once we can secure access to clean water and to adequate sanitation facilities for all people, irrespective of the difference in their living conditions, a huge battle against all kinds of diseases will be won."
-Dr LEE Jong-wook, Director-General, World Health Organization.
