Water is the foundation of life however the sad reality is that today - At least 1.8 Billion globally use a contaminated drinking source. Every minute a child dies due to consumption of contaminated water.
In poverty stricken countries millions of individuals mainly women and young children walk kilometres spending their entire day searching for water and end up with obtaining polluted water.
Many of us take it for granted, we waste it, and we even pay too much to drink it from little plastic bottles. Today, nearly 1.8 Billion people in the world live without clean water. That’s nearly 1 in 10 people worldwide. An Estimated 4,100 children under 5 die each day from diseases caused by unsanitary water conditions globally.
SYF believes that no-one should be deprived of a basic need of survival. More than 840,000 people die every year due to water related diseases. With your donations we will be able to provide Clean Running Water - resulting in thousands of lives being saved and a chance for these individuals to create positive futures for themselves and their families.
In many families, women and girls fetch water for the family every day from a communal source that is located far away. This takes hours, depriving them of a profitable working time or education. Constant lifting and carrying of heavy water pots cause health problems, particularly among pregnant women.
