Ready access to clean water is something we take for granted and yet, without it, our health and well-being would be greatly affected. Today 844 million people do not have access to clean water. Your selfless donations continue to contribute to improving this reality.

Join us today, by clicking on your favorite picture, as we celebrate #WorldWaterDay2018! Our hope is to acknowledging our collective efforts thus far and continue to work together until everyone has access to the fundamental right of clean water!
