Every two minutes, a child dies from a water and sanitation-related disease.
Access to safe water and sanitation contributes to improved health and helps prevent the spread of infectious disease, like diarrhea. Safe water can save lives.
Having access to safe water is time saved. Time that would have been spent walking for miles to collect water, can be time that kids can get back to play, to just be kids, to go to school, get an education and create a bright future.
In many developing countries the task of collecting water, falls on women and girls. In fact, women and girls collectively spend over 200 million hours every day collecting water.
This takes time away from work, school and caring for family, locking women in a cycle of poverty. Providing access to safe water can help to empower women, giving them time back to get an education and to earn a living.
