More than 1000 children under age 5 die every day from disease caused by contaminated water. Globally, 844 million people struggle to survive due to lack of access to safe drinking water. Women and children make long, exhausting journeys to collect unsafe water for their families. Unsafe water is not just dirty, it's deadly. Access to clean water helps solve the many factors that perpetuate poverty - like nutrition, health, education, and being able to generate an income.
