Naira says:

Do you know more people on the planet have a cell phone than have access to a toilet and over a billion people lack no way to flush away yesterday's meal at all? Do you know more people die each year from unsafe water than from wars? Check these facts:

  • Every 20 seconds, a child dies from a water-related disease and diarrhea remains the second leading cause of death of children under the age of 5.
  • 1 in 8 people don't have safe water meaning each morning they scavenge to survive.
  • In just 1 day, more than 200 million hours of women's time is wasted simply collecting water for domestic use.
  • Half of the world's hospital beds are occupied by patients suffering from diseases associated with lack of access to safe drinking water, inadequate sanitation or poor hygiene.

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. Believe me, we can!

I remember once our water main broke as I was shaving. As the saying goes, you don't realize what you have, until you lose it. Go Matt!
