Almost a billion people on the planet donít have access to clean drinking water. Unsafe water and a lack of basic sanitation cause 80% of all disease and kill more people than all forms of violence, including war.
charity: water is a non-profit organization bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing nations. 100% of public donations directly fund water projects. Just $20 can give one person access to clean water for 20 years. An average water project costs $5,000 and can serve 250 people with clean, safe water. Today OBR and our customers have donated over $750 for charity: water.
