What was the first thing you did when you woke up this morning? Chances are you used water. Try to imagine life without water. It's tough, we know. But for lots of people, life without clean water is just life. It's normal. In some places, it's normal to walk four hours a day to get water. Water that's disgusting. It's full of diseases. Nasty ones like dysentery cholera, and typhoid. In fact, diseases from dirty water kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war.
And here's the crazy thing: the water crisis is solvable. Our planet has water, we just need to help people get it. When we do it brings all kinds of changes. Clean water improves health. Gives kids more time in school, empowers women, boosts economies, and gives hope for a brighter future. Clean water changes just about everything.
