The world is in the midst of a massive crisis. About one out of six of our fellow human beings on Earth does not have daily, immediate access to the most basic of necessities: safe drinking water. If you don’t have this, you get sick or you die. This represents the largest health crisis facing humanity, period.
Much of the burden falls on women.
Millions of women and children in the Global South spend countless hours carrying water back to their villages and families. Carrying barrels of water for long distances every day. Much of this water is polluted and not fit for drinking.
More people die from diseases related to unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation, than any and all forms of violence, including war.
Many of these diseases are preventable. The WHO reports that over 3.6% of the global disease burden can be prevented simply by improving water supply, sanitation, and hygiene. The UN estimates it would cost an additional $30 billion to provide access to safe water to the entire planet. That’s a third of what the world spends in a year on bottled water.
The water Crisis can be solved. All we ask is you fight with us.
We are taking our stand. For each purchase of any goclean waterless product a donation goes to the African Well Fund. 91% of the donation goes directly towards water projects in developing parts of the world ran by local community groups. Clean water close by means more time for families creating real change in their lives.
