Across Guatemala, dirty water is making children sick, and as a result thousands die every year.
However, when you provide clean, disease-free water, lives are saved.
Because just $1 gives one child a lasting source of clean water for a full year, your gift of $30 will help dozens of people, even bring health to a whole village.
Families face an urgent need, because more than 98% of water sources in Guatemala are contaminated with refuse, and human and animal waste. The resulting worms, parasites, and bacteria cause diseases including malaria, typhoid, and cholera. Diarrhea alone causes both malnutrition and dehydration—if severe, it can kill a child within days.
