About 783 million people live without access to clean water— which is just less than three times the population of the United States.
More than 3.4 million people die each year from water, sanitation and hygiene-related causes— with nearly all of them occurring in the developing world.
And among children…
Diarrhea is the second leading cause of death among children under 5 in the world.
Nearly 1.5 million children under the age of 5 die every year from diarrhea globally— that is an estimated 4,100 children each day.
That means every 21 seconds a child dies from a water-related illness.
Living with clean water is a necessity, not a luxury people should bear in the 21st Century.
Donate $10 to Water is Life and you can provide clean water to one person for one year.
