Aqwalife: Providing Safe Drinking Water
Aqwalife is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing and facilitating the access to safe drinking water in underprivileged areas. Water scarcity is a serious problem facing the world today and affects one in three people on every continent.* Every 15 seconds, a child dies from a waterborne disease.** That is four children dying each minute over the inability to access safe drinking water, fixable problem.
Safe drinking water is so precious but taken for granted. Aqwalife’s mission is to provide safe drinking water to fight against these preventable deaths. Our goals include corrective action, which is providing safe drinking water, and preventive action, which is stopping the spreading of waterborne diseases such as cholera, typhoid, and malaria.
