More than 768 million people lack access to clean drinking water, and some 2.5 billion people do not have access to proper sanitation.
Dirty water and inadequate sanitation access, combined with other hygiene issues, cause the deaths of more than 1,600 children under the age of 5 every day. That’s more than the under-5 deaths resulting from AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria combined.
Contact your members of Congress. Urge them to cosponsor the Water for the World Act. This critical legislation would build upon the investments that the United States is making to improve global access to clean water and sanitation.
