Harry for drop4drop 2016

Clean water is not a guarantee everywhere in the world. In fact, one in 9 people (663 million people) in the world does not have access to safe water. Not having access to clean and safe water causes illnesses that are preventable resulting in hospitalizations for many and lives lost, including 1.5 million children. An astounding half of the hospital beds in the world are occupied by people suffering from water related diseases.

In communities without safe water, women and children are often in charge of collecting it. It is calculated that to collect water, women and children around the world collectively walk 200 million miles a day. That equates to more than 443 million school days are lost each year for this activity.  If all the communities of the world had access to safe water, the women could invest that time working to better their family’s lives and contributing to their communities. Children would not lose school days and could focus on education. Clean and safe water helps communities stay healthy and thrive.

 

HDrop4drop is committed to bring safe water to communities in a sustainable way by involving local labourers that help build wells and are trained to maintain them. You can donate either to a well being built or you can be the sole donor of a well that will have a plaque with your name. If you are the sole donor of a well, Drop4drop will send you pictures of the well, GPS of the site, and case study from a member of the community. To donate to drop4drop go to this page on their website.
