ITH Charities Clean Water Mission is working in several countries in Africa to improve water supplies and sanitation facilities in schools and communities, and to promote safe hygiene practices. Your contribution to our water charity will help to improve the quality of life for all those without access to clean water. We sponsor a wide range of activities and work with many partners, including families, communities, governments and like-minded organizations.
‘Water is life.’
It is more vital to human survival than food or any other commodity. Yet, it can also spread deadly diseases if contaminated and inappropriately used or kept. People in desperate situations often lack the choice or the capacity to distinguish between safe and unsafe water. They are forced to use whatever is available. The goal of our water charity is to allow for the access to clean water, and prevent the unnecessary spread of disease and illness.
According to the latest estimates of the WHO/UNICEF Joint Monitoring Programme for Water Supply and Sanitation (JMP), 32 per cent of the world’s population – 2.4 billion people – lacked improved sanitation facilities, and 663 million people still used unimproved drinking water sources in 2015 Inadequate access to safe water and sanitation services, coupled with poor hygiene practices, kills and sickens thousands of children every day, and leads to impoverishment and diminished opportunities for thousands more. Poor sanitation, water and hygiene have many other serious repercussions. Children – and particularly girls – are denied their right to education because their schools lack private and decent sanitation facilities. Source: UNICEF.
