Children's Safe Drinking Water

By Hollyshaun0528 @TwinglesMom42
Did you know...
  • Less than 1% of the world’s fresh water is readily accessible for direct human use.
  • Almost 1 billion people lack safe drinking water.
  • More than 1.4 billion children under age 5 die each year because of diseases associated with contaminated drinking water—more than HIV/AIDS and malaria combined.
  • Every 20 seconds, a child in a developing country dies from a water-related illness.
  • Providing safe, clean, drinkable water can reduce deadly diseases by about 50%.
  • The daily per capita use of water in residential areas is: 350 liters in North America and Japan, 200 liters in Europe and only 10-20 liters in sub-Saharan Africa.
  • An American taking a 5-minute shower uses more water that the typical person living in a developing country slum uses in an entire day.
  • Waterborne diseases remain the leading cause of illness and death in the developing world.
But with your help, we can make a difference.
The PUR packet is an amazing innovation that quickly turns 10 liters of dirty, potentially deadly water into clean and drinkable water. And, because it is much smaller and easier to ship than plastic water bottles, anyone anywhere in the world can easily use it.
So please, support the Children's Safe Drinking Water Program and Help Provide Clean Drinking Water. You can also "Like" GIVE HEALTH on Facebook. I did.
P&G;'s GIVE HEALTH program works to provide clean drinking water to families in need.
This is a paid advertisement on behalf of the PG myGive Campaign. Regardless, I only use this space to endorse products and services I believe will be beneficial to my readers - or in this case, to humanity at large.
