Charity Water gives 100% of all public donations to directly fund water projects. This is not about backpacking or hiking but it is such an important topic that it's my way of giving something back.
Clean, Safe Drinking Water
When YOU sponsor a project, you help hundreds of people receive clean, safe drinking water within 18 months. When completed, you'll receive a report with GPS coordinates and photos showing where your donation brought water to people in a community.
Instead of receiving presents, you ask your friends and family to give a donation to go towards a water project. If your birthday is still a long way off, don't worry, they'll remind you! Or you can even donate early.
Pledge Your Next Birthday
Important Note: 4,100 children die each day from water related illnesses!
Diseases from unsafe drinking water and poor sanitation kill more people than all forms of violence, including war! Children, as their bodies are not strong enough to fight off disease, are especially vulnerable.
90% of the 30,000 deaths each week are children under the age of 5 due to unsafe drinking water, poor sanitation and hygiene. Many of these diseases are preventable. Over 3.6% of the global disease burden can be prevented simply by improving water, sanitation and hygiene.
Note: 800 million people don't have access to clean, safe drinking water. Contact Charity Water to learn more!
