The Charities Making Clean Water A Global Reality
In 2019, 1 in 3 people globally still do not have access to safe drinking water. That’s over 2.2 Billion people across the world. Which is why we as a brand commit to donating 15% of all profits from every bottle sold to the water related charities worldwide who are helping to protect our precious planet. To reach Universal access efforts must continue, and today we thought it right to highlight the wonderful work already being done by clean water organisations and nonprofits nationally and internationally.
“Mere access is not enough. If the water isn’t clean, isn’t safe to drink or is far away, then we’re not delivering for the world’s children,” Kelly Ann Naylor, Associate Director of Water, Sanitation and Hygiene, UNICEF.
This ethos is embraced wholeheartedly by our first charity Water Aid, who operate in 28 countries where they help in providing access to safe water. Water Aid aim to change lives in three ways, through clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene.
This non-profit organisation works worldwide to enable local communities to break free from poverty and change their lives for good. In the countries where they work, people often cannot access safe water locally because of dangerous infrastructure and mismanagement. Water Aid strives to install taps, toilets and safe infrastructure in these areas, their work doesn’t stop there either, they also work to make change happen on a greater scale through lobbying governments and key policy makers. Since 1981, they have reached over 27 million people with clean water. If you want to help them in their mission to reach 100 million you can find everything you need here.
This non-profit organisation is heralded as the ‘bold’ and ‘innovative’ answer to the water crisis. They believe there is a smart way to end water poverty and that is through small, affordable loans. They recognise that one of the main barriers to safe water and sanitation is affordable financing, so aim to address this reality head on. They bring safe water and sanitation to the world by addressing the need for financial support. Through these loans millions of people get access to safe water, get the time back to go to school and subsequently earn an income to care for their family. Water.org has been breaking the cycle of poverty for 25 years, and they want you to be part of the universal access solution.
With 125 partner charities across the world they’ve mobilized over $1.8 billion in the effort to bring a sustainable solution that reaches more people, faster. Every $1 equals $59 in WaterCredit, and with every donation you add to the 22 million people they have already helped. https://water.org/donate/
