World Water Day 2019 - Leaving No One Behind

Very often, after sharing stories about our water development work in Kenya, people will ask, “what’s your goal?”.
The theme of this year’s UN World Water Day says it perfectly; “LEAVING NO ONE BEHIND”.

The facts are staggering,

  • A child dies every 21 seconds from waterborne illness
  • 80% of illness in developing countries is due to drinking contaminated water
  • 2.1 billion people live without clean water at their home, that’s six and a half times the population of the United States!
  • Women spend 200 million hours each day walking for water.
  • The average distance women and girls walk each day for water is 3.7 miles.
  • Water-borne diseases kill more children under the age of five than malaria, measles, and HIV/AIDS – combined.

These truths are pretty dismal but there is something you can do…
