Did you know that someone—often a child—is dying every 37.5 seconds from diarrheal diseases caused by dirty water and poor sanitation and hygiene? That means 842,000 deaths each year.
Each day, water-related and sanitation-related diseases kill more than 2,300 people. Children are the most vulnerable and many of these deaths are preventable. Samaritan’s Purse provides long-term, life-saving safe water to hundreds of thousands of people every year through BioSand Water Filters.
