Why clean water matters
For children to grow up happy and healthy, they need to have clean water, proper sanitation, and good hygiene. Yet every day, nearly 1,000 children under five die from diarrhoea because of dirty water, poor sanitation and unsafe hygiene practices.
Contamination from industry or agriculture makes water undrinkable and can lead to waterborne diseases. And unreliable rainfall and the effects of climate change mean families are forced to travel further for water and might end up using unsafe, dirty sources.
If you want to support an effective safe drinking water charity, look no further. World Vision is the largest non-government provider of clean water in the developing world.
