Imagine having to walk two hours per day to collect dirty water, ridden with chemicals, parasites, bacteria and life threatening viruses. Imagine this is the only source of drinking water for you, your children, your entire family. Imagine that your children have a 1 in 3 chance of reaching their fifth birthday. For more than 1 BILLION people globally, this is reality. In fact, UN estimates show that nearly 5 million people around the world die each year as a result of clean water issues.
Our goal at Global H2O is to help provide clean water sources to those in need, through construction of wells, rain harvesting facilities, and spring boxes. We contract with organizations in developing countries to identify where we can significantly improve lives in a short period of time, with minimal expense and complexity. A $20 donation can provide clean water to one person for the rest of his or her life. The water problem is vast, but the solution is simple and effective.
