people on our planet don't have access to safe drinking water.
Diseases contracted from water kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war.
children die per day from a water-related disease, as many have immune systems that aren't strong enough to fight toxic water
Many people are forced to travel 6 hours every day to gather water -- water that's often contaminated with toxic heavy metals like arsenic.
Women and girls are disproportionately affected, as they are often tasked with gathering water everyday. This takes time away from work, school and caring for family, and furthers the cycle of poverty.
When women have access to safe water, they can pursue skills outside of their traditional roles and experience greater autonomy and independence.
