Happy World Water Day!
World Water day is an annual United Nations Observance celebrating water and raising awareness of those who don't have access to safe water.
The bigger picture.
Currently 771 million people (1 in 10) don't have access to safe water. For those affected, this is more than just a water crisis.
- Health Crisis: Every 2 minutes, a child dies from a water-related disease and approximately 1 million people die annually from water, sanitation, and hygiene related diseases.
- Education Crisis: Children are with-held from proper education due to time spent collecting water.
- Economic Crisis: $260 billion is lost globally due to the global water crisis.
Access to safe water is a luxury many take for granted. So for World Water Day we challenge you to think about how you are using your water.
