VIS Charity Water

663 million people in the world live without clean water.   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.

These people need our help. They didn’t choose to be born in a village where the only source of water is a polluted swamp. We invite you to put yourself in their shoes. Follow them on their daily journey. Carry 80 pounds of water in yellow fuel cans. Dig with their children in the sand for water. Line up at a well and wait eight hours for a turn.

Charity Water is a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing clean and safe drinking water to rural communities in developing nations. They are passionate about changing the fact that every 1 in 10 people lacks access to clean water.
Charity Water is currently involved in water programs in 24 different countries in Central and South America, Africa and Asia.

Rural communities without access to clean water need our help! Take action and donate.
