Clean Drinking Water
Clean Water Saves Lives
Water is life. Yet 768 million people do not have access to safe, clean drinking water, and 2.5 billion people live without proper sanitation. When water is unsafe and sanitation non-existent, water can kill.
Across the globe, every day, 1,400 children die from diseases directly linked to unsafe water or a lack of basic sanitation facilities.
Since 1990, thanks to the work of UNICEF and its partners, more than 2 billion people have gained access to clean drinking water.
UNICEF Tap Project
Since 2007, the UNICEF Tap Project has helped children worldwide gain access to clean water. For 2014, the UNICEF Tap Project challenges you to save a child's life by putting down your phone.
For every ten minutes you don't touch your phone, UNICEF can provide one day of clean water to a child in need. Start now!
