Water is the key to all life: Nearly every single living organism needs water to survive. Yet across the globe, ONE IN EVERY NINE people do not have access to clean water.
Without water to drink, people can’t live. Without water for their crops and livestock, they can’t eat enough or earn a living. If their water isn’t clean, they won’t be healthy. If their water comes from a faraway source, they have to spend their days carrying it instead of going to school or earning an income—this affects women and girls the most.
A United Nations publication, “Safe Water as the Key to Global Health,” stated: “No other single intervention is more likely to have a significant impact on global poverty than the provision of safe water.”
Here’s just a sampling of our recent efforts for water and sanitation:
Improved access to safe and hygienic shower and gender-friendly sanitation facilities for women and girls who are Myanmar refugees living in camps.
Rehabilitating and constructing water harvesting structures in Somalia.
Building flood protection and retaining walls at points posing flood risk to villages in Pakistan.
