charity: water is a non-profit bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing nations. Nearly a billion people in our world don’t have access to clean drinking water. Unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation cause 80% of diseases and kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war. The good news: there are simple solutions, from deep drilled wells to water filtration systems. In six years, charity: water has funded more than 6,000 water projects in 20 developing countries, providing clean, safe drinking water for more than 2.5 million people.
