Take Action to Increase Clean Water Access
Clean water is a basic human right. Without water, we can not survive. But today, 663 million people around the world do not have access to clean water.
World Water Day is a annual event celebrated globally on March 22 to bring greater attention to the clean water needs around the world and encourage us all to take action.
During the month of March, Haiti Outreach wants to increase awareness to the needs of clean water in Haiti through our World Water Day campaign. By expanding awareness, we hope to meet our goal of raising $100,000 to support at least 6 new Haitian communities to gain sustainable access to clean water.
Need for Clean Water
Most of us in the United States take clean water for granted. It’s hard to imagine our lives without it, as all we have to do is open the faucet and clean water flows freely.
Now travel to Haiti where half of the population has no access to clean water. Did you know that in Haiti:
- Women and children are the main water collectors, often walking more than a mile for water?
- With no access to clean water, people gather their water from sources like a river – the same river where they wash their clothes and bathe their animals?
- With no access to clean water, children easily become ill from contaminated water? And due to lack of resources, these treatable illnesses often lead to death in Haiti?
