Water, the basic building block of life is crucially needed for every aspect of our living. Yet, it is a scare resource in many parts of the world and the statistics are grim:
- In certain regions, women and children walk over 10 kilometres, multiple times a day, to get a bucket of water. It is noteworthy that the time spent on this also deprives many such children of literacy.
- Millions of people die every year from preventable diseases borne by contaminated water.
- Whole communities are uprooted from their homes in search of water.
This is where IDRF comes in. For over thirty years IDRF, a Canadian registered charitable organisation, has been helping to improve the lives of disadvantaged people in various parts of the world through relief aid and development programs, including the provision of clean water.
Together we can help underprivileged children, women and men access clean drinking water and improve the statistics, one drop at a time.
