This summer while children in the United States swim in pools, play in fire hydrants and splash parks and argue with their parents about drinking more water, the children in Madagascar deal with life without taps or toilets. WaterAid is on a mission to change that.
Every year in Madagascar, 13,000 children under five die simply because they don’t have access to clean drinking water and sanitary waste removal.
This amazing project by WaterAid will reach 12,000 children in Madagascar, or 31 schools and over 100 toilets and 150 taps. Think about that while your children swim in water cleaner than most children in Madagascar will ever drink from.
The best part? Even if you aren’t able to donate to help today, you can follow the story and see the amazing work in action.
I hope these children’s dreams come through, and thank WaterAid for giving them the resources to make that happen.
