In August, Give Clean Water celebrated its third year anniversary of providing clean water to those in need. It’s been an amazing three years! Since 2008 we have provided over 35,000 people with clean water to drink.
Our reach has touched areas of the world including Fiji, Haiti, Ecuador, Tanzania, Sierra Leone, and many other parts of the world.
The need for clean water is still great. The World Health Organization claims that water issues affect one in three people on every continent of the globe. The statistics can be overwhelming, but we try to always focus on the individual family. The smile on the face of a child as they taste their new clean water. The joy in the eyes of a mother telling us her kids haven’t been sick since we installed the water filter. It’s those moments that keep us motivated to continue our work to change the world one family, one filter at a time.
