We take clean water for granted. We have clean water to drink, to cook with and to shower with. The harsh reality is that many people around the globe worry each and every day about where they are going to get clean and safe water.
This holiday season, I am teaming up with Village Green Network and Charity Water to help bring clean, safe and healthy water to the people of Cambodia. Charity Water works year-round to bring clean water to people in need and uses their resources to enhance the quality of life in impoverished communities all over the world.
What Is Charity Water?
Since 2006, Charity Water has empowered communities in several different countries by providing them with clean water. This can come in the form of building wells, providing filtration systems, or even setting up rainwater catchments. Charity Water is a non-profit organization with a mission to bring clean and safe drinking water to every person on the planet.
Who Will My Charity Water Donation Help?
This specific campaign raises money for Charity Water’s campaign based in Cambodia. The people in this part of the world have plenty of water in their region, but there are not enough filtration systems to ensure that the water is drinkable and disease-free.
- There are 14.8 million people in Cambodia.
- 33% don’t have access to clean water.
- 67% don’t have adequate sanitation.
- 23% are below the poverty line.
When you donate to this Charity Water campaign, the money will pay for BioSand Filters for families in Cambodia. These are natural filters, designed to eliminate 99% of all residential water bacteria. The filter will stay with the family to whom it is given, and will continue supplying them with fresh water.
How Much Money Does Charity Water Need?
We set a goal to raise $50,000 for Charity Water this holiday season.
A donation of $15 will help Charity Water help one person retain access to water, but a $65 donation will provide an entire family with a BioSand Filter.
If we achieve our goal, Charity Water will help over 700 families get water filters in Cambodia.
