More than 2.5 billion people worldwide lack access to basic sanitation services – that’s more than one-third of the global population. Water-related diseases kill 1 out of every 5 children under the age of 5 worldwide. In fact, dirty water kills more people every year than all forms of violence, including war.
World Hope International (WHI) believes that access to fresh water helps to sustain and prolong life, prevents the spread of disease, promotes an increased quality of life, and increases time for economic productivity.
Since 2004, WHI has worked to drill clean water wells and provide necessary sanitation in some the world’s most impoverished communities. Because of the initiatives of WHI, hundreds of thousands of people in Sierra Leone, Liberia, Mozambique, and Cambodia are living healthier, more productive lives now because of access to clean water.
Help us reach our goal of raising $13,000.00 to help provide clean water to those in need.
