Every 20 seconds a child dies from a water-related disease! Each year 3,575,000 people die worldwide from water-related diseases. Only 62% of the world's population has access to improved sanitation -- defined as a sanitation facility that ensures hygienic separation of human excreta from human contact. The ancient Romans had better water quality than half the world's population alive now!
Pledge to review the work of Water.org and other humanitarian organizations trying to reduce these needless deaths. Please help if you can!
