Water Works: Supporting Water.org's Mission
$480 has already been raised towards my goal
Hi my name is Shivani Pandey and I have been fund raising for Water.org through my firstgiving page (link below) since March 2011.
Before you have even finished reading the following paragraph at least one child has died from a water-related disease.
The water crisis in the world today is not because of scarcity, it is due to lack of access. Did you know that there are more people on earth that own cell phones than those who have access to a toilet.
Each day the lack of access to clean water and proper sanitation kills thousands of people and leaves many others with reduced quality of life.
At any given time, half of the world’s hospital beds are occupied by patients suffering from a water-related disease. It is not impossible to fight the global water crisis, the solutions are very simple and cost-effective.
Although the global water crisis is huge, small contributions can go a long way. Every US dollar invested in water and sanitation provides an economic return of eight US dollars. Even $5 can bring clean water to a small village. No matter how much, know that the impact of your donation far exceeds the dollar amount.
All donations are secure and sent directly to Water.org by FirstGiving, who provide you with a printable record of your donation.
What your gift can do?
$25 Provides one person safe drinking water for life.
$30 Builds one toilet.
$200 Provides a household water tap and a toilet to a family in Honduras
$1,000 Provides public water points and latrines to a village of 400 in Bangladesh
$5000 Constructs a spring protection system for a village in Ethiopia.
For only $25 Water.org can get someone safe water for life. Co-founded by Matt Damon, Water.org has been helping people get sustainable solutions for over twenty years. We can make a difference in the world, we can help change someone's life.
