Do good: Provide clean water

Most likely whenever you were thirsty today you were able to go to a tap and get clean, drinkable water or easily buy bottled water. Not everyone can do this. 1.1 BILLION people do not have access to safe, clean drinking water. Dirty water is a major cause of illness in many parts of the world. Without a local source of clean water, many are forced to walk for hours to get containers of water. This activity keeps children out of school and adults out of employment. That is absurd that one in six of the worlds population goes without such an essential thing. Charity:water works to provide sustainable access to clean water in the areas of the world that need it most but do not have the money to build wells.
