1/3 of people in Africa face water scarcity, and in sub Saharan Africa alone, 400 million people lack access to clean water. Without clean water, necessary tasks such as drinking water and bathing become extremely difficult. In many villages, the role of collecting water is given to women, leading them to miss out on education. These women spend countless hours carrying loads that weigh as much as baby rhinos in order to support their families. As a last resort, communities without water are forced to bathe in nearby ponds where they can contract various waterborne diseases.
Every dollar you donate can help to improve the standard of living for millions of people suffering from a lack of water. Your donations can decrease fatality from waterborne diseases, break a long lasting poverty cycle in many villages, increase education, and help empower women in sub Saharan Africa.
