It's all about Water.
Our Mission is Simple: Changing lives and communities through clean water solutions.
A lack of safe, clean drinking water is still the largest crisis facing people around our world today. Water is the foundational building block, and first step, for any community in the developing world to begin moving toward self sufficiency and stability.
A child dies every 21 seconds from water-related disease. These deaths aren't simply caused by contaminated water, but also by a lack of access to proper sanitation and hygiene. Thirst Relief not only provides people with clean water, but also the knowledge of and access to proper sanitation that will be passed down throughout generations.
443 million school days are lost each year due to water related illness. Hours are also spent each day retrieving water, which results in no time to pursue education. Clean water solutions allow children to focus on education and their future rather than water gathering.
In one day women around the world spend 200 million hours collecting water. By providing a community with access to clean water, you are freeing up valuable time that members of that community can use to work, go to school, and perpetuate sustainable life. On average, every $1 invested in water and sanitation provides an economic return in that community of $8.
