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.
Thanks for your support during World Water Month. Together people have gone over 250 million minutes without their phones to help children in need of clean water. Time donations are now inactive, but you can still go without your phone and donate to support the UNICEF Tap Project.
