When you are thirsty you grab a drink of water. If you are dirty you take a shower and clean yourself off. When nature calls you find the nearest restroom. We are the lucky few that have access to clean water whenever we need it. However, there are still 663 million people in the world without access to clean water and water.org is making the change they need.
A daughter has to miss school to gather clean drinking water. A mother has to walk several miles a day to wash clothes in the local river. Water.org revolutionized the way clean water is acquired by providing a sustainable financial solution. WaterCredit “allows people in need to access small loans for water connections or toilets, empowering them to accelerate change in their own homes and communities.” It is a pay-it-forward system that paves the way for lasting change in the world.
World Water Day is marked every year on March 22 and is about taking action and tackling the world water crisis. This years focus is “Why wastewater?” Around the world wastewater from our homes, cities, industry and agriculture is recycled into nature without being treated or reused. By treating and reusing our water we will make the water cycle more effective for our planet.
This year on March 22 support World Water Day and provide the access and clean water that 663 million people need. Gandhi once said, “be the change you want to see in the world.” Water is a basic necessity for life and everyone deserves the gift of life. Help to change a life and give water to the world.
