700 MILLION PEOPLE LIVE WITHOUT CLEAN WATER
Dirty water kills more people than war.
THIS IS NOT THE WORLD WE WANT TO CREATE.
At HCI, we want to provide clean and safe water to those who need it most, providing opportunities for better education, health, and growth.
Water for Education.
Clean water keeps children in school.
FACT: 443 million school days are lost each year from water-related illness because many children are too busy fetching water from afar, caring for sick family members, or are too sick to attend school.
Water for Health.
Clean water prevents early death.
FACT: Drinking dirty water kills 1000 children a day through diarrhea, typhoid, cholera, dysentery and other water-borne illnesses.
Water for Growth.
Clean water reduces poverty.
FACT: Dirty water means people are too busy trying to survive, and too busy battling illness and thirst to help their communities prosper.
HCI is on the ground in the most drought-stricken, dry areas of the world, digging wells down to pure, clean water for communities. To date, we’ve been able to bring clean and safe water to nearly 200 communities.
There are still 1 in 10 people on our planet that do not have access to clean and safe drinking water. HCI’s goal is to give access to 1 million people.
A one time donation of $120 helps 40 people.
