Save the Children:clean water is crucial to the health of children-et varia

World Water Day

Access to clean water is crucial to the health of children and the well-being of entire communities. Children often walk hours every day, unable to spend time reading and playing, in order to fetch buckets of clean water. Diarrhea, one of the leading causes of child mortality, can be considerably reduced through access to clean water. Plus, if children aren’t spending their days fetching water, they can learn and play.

Donate to our mission and you can help us provide clean, safe water with dug and drilled wells, water pumps and latrines – improving health, sanitation and agriculture of communities.

A WORLD APART

Children need water for washing, drinking, cleaning, and – yes – learning! Millions of children around the world spend hours each day searching for water, which takes away from time that could be spent learning and playing. When clean water flows, children can grow! You can help children get clean water.
