Millions of people suffer and die every year because they don’t have the most basic necessity freely available to them. Help us change that.

 

We have a simple mission: to give more people in the world clean water to drink. While this is a trivial quest in a developed country, without governmental support or social infrastructure, it can be incredibly difficult. Water Charity aims to help communities
develop sustainable, ecological, simple, easy-to-maintain systems to get clean drinking water to everyone who needs it.

What We’re Doing
