Access to safe water stands in the way of millions of kids around the world and a bright future. Dirty water disproportionately impacts children. More than 500,000 children die needlessly every year from diarrhea caused by unsafe water and poor sanitation. And, the loss of 443 million school days each year due to water-related illness limits the potential of these young minds. Water.org is working to break down the barriers that stand between these kids, their families and safe water.
