Safe and clean water. A most basic and vital human right that we so often take for granted. Well, here is something to think about the next time you take a long shower or bath, or throw away a bottle of water that isn’t empty yet: one in ten people lack access to safe water and, believe it or not, one in three people lack access to a toilet.
Those statistics might sound shocking when you first hear them, but the water crisis is real. The good news is: it is solvable. And the better news is: you can also help.
Dulce Salerno is a proud supporter of Water.org.
663 million people, 1 in 10 lack access to safe water; 2.4 billion people, 1 in 3 lack access to a toilet. Water.org is dedicated to changing this. Through sustainable solutions and financing models such as WaterCredit, we can provide safe water and the dignity of a toilet for all.
Founded by Gary White and Matt Damon, Water.org pioneers innovative, community-driven and market-based solutions to provide access to safe water and sanitation — giving women hope, children health and communities a future. To date, Water.org has positively transformed millions of lives around the world, ensuring a better life for generations ahead.
Water changes life and a little bit of help can make a huge difference. In fact, every one US dollar invested in water and sanitation provides an economic return of four US dollars. And for only $25, Water.org can bring someone access to safe water.
