Water is an essential tool in our everyday lives. We use it for drinking, bathing, and for sanitation. According to WaterAid, 11% of the world's population lacks access to clean water. 700,000 children die each year due to water related diseases from a lack of proper sanitation. Not having access to clean drinking water impacts a person's health, which then in turn adds to incurring health care costs and loss of time interrupting jobs and education.
WaterAid aims at providing safe drinking water to those in need. WaterAid also works to help communities build better sanitation practices and they provide vital hygiene education around the world. Since 1981, WaterAid has been able to provide 17.5 million people with clean, safe water. This has been possible thanks to community involvement, volunteers, and donations.
