Clean drinking water is not only water, but a luxury for some people. In Netherlands, we are lucky enough to be blessed with this luxury. It is as simple to have access to clean water as one can imagine, just turn on the tap for a glass of water is all that is needed. Unfortunately, this is not the case for everyone. Worldwide, millions of people have to walk for hours every day for their water, which is often also polluted and full of bacteria. This is the reality for a tenth of the entire world population. Polluted water is the cause of diseases such as diarrhea, cholera, dysentery, typhus and polio. More than 760,000 children younger than 5 years die each year from diarrhea alone. Water is a basic need to build a healthy life. With your support we can make clean drinking water accessible for everyone.
