Watch this inspiring video from an organization that calls us to help provide clean water and sanitation for all people by 2030.
In 2000, the United Nations agreed to eight international development goals by 2015, including a focus on providing safe, clean drinking water to those without it. The good news, the goal for water was met by 2010 - the number of people without access to clean fresh water was cut by half. The bad news, 750 million people still lack access to safe water. Most of these people live in the southern hemisphere where the lack of clean water affects other, significant issues like poverty, health, and education. Don't you think that's a problem?
A number of organizations and nations are committed to continuing to address the lack of clean, safe water. Bottom line, cutting the number of people without access to water in half was great, but there's still more work to do. Watch this inspiring video from WaterAid, an organization committed to providing access to clean, safe water to everyone, everywhere by 2030.
