Children often bear the burden of walking miles each day to find water in streams and ponds. Sickness and the time lost fetching it robs entire communities of their futures.
Every day, more than 800 children die from preventable diseases caused by unclean water, or a lack of sanitation and hygiene. Poor sanitation, water and hygiene affect more than just children`s health.
When your child comes to you, asking you for food, and you have no food for her to eat, and yet you have to send her to fetch water. With an empty stomach.
With an empty stomach, she has to walk 6 hours for a gallon of dirty water.
Because of that water, imagine seeing your daughter take her last breath.
