Turn Your Social Network Into a Water Network
No one can survive without water. Yet nearly 800 million people do not have safe, clean water to drink, and more than 2.5 billion people live without a proper toilet. The lack of these basic necessities isn’t just inconvenient—it’s lethal. Every day, nearly 4,000 children under the age of five die of water-borne diseases. Through the UNICEF Tap Project and your social network, you can help stop these needless deaths.
How Does the UNICEF Tap Project Provide Clean Water?
The UNICEF Tap Project is a nationwide campaign that provides clean water and adequate sanitation to children around the world. With just $5, UNICEF can give one child safe drinking water for 200 days. Currently, UNICEF works in more than 100 countries around the world to improve access to safe water and sanitation facilities in schools and communities and to promote safe hygiene practices. Since 1990, thanks to the work of UNICEF and its partners, more than 2 billion people have gained access to clean drinking water.
