Excerpt from World Hope’s website

It’s estimated that 884 million of the world’s population lack access to clean water; that’s nearly three times the number of people living in the United States. Each day, 6,000 people die from drinking unsafe water. In at least 33 African countries, the under five mortality rate from drinking unclean water is 100 of every 1,000 births.

Clean water is vital to not only prolonging life, but improving the quality of one’s existence. Since 2004, World Hope International has drilled more than 700 wells, which have provided clean water to more than 500,000 people in five African countries. But there’s still a long way to go.

Well we know it’s at least 701 now. 9 more to go!
