I chose charity: water because I feel that its not fair that we have access to clean water and many people in other countries have to drink dirty water. We take for granted when we leave the faucet running while we brush our teeth or take a long shower.
663 million people in the world live without clean water. That’s nearly 1 in 10 people worldwide. Or, twice the population of the United States. The majority live in isolated rural areas and spend hours every day walking to collect water for their family. Not only does walking for water keep children out of school or take up time that parents could be using to earn money, but the water often carries diseases that can make everyone sick. But access to clean water means education, income and health - especially for women and kids.
Charity:water works with local experts and community members to find the best sustainable solution in each place where they work, whether it’s a well, a piped system, a BioSand Filter, or a system for harvesting rainwater. And with every water point they fund, their partners coordinate sanitation and hygiene training, and establish a local Water Committee to help keep water flowing for years to come.
I am fundraising for my Mitzvah project and my goal is to raise $5000. Would you please consider donating to help me reach my goal.
Thanks for your help,
