Project Migration products fund wells for clean water and life-saving medical supplies for single women and their children living in slums. A single t-shirt will provide a woman and her children, with 5 years of clean water and medical aid.
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful,
committed people can change the world.
Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
Water changes everything:
- Every $1 spent on efforts to provide clean water generates $8 as a result of saved time, increased productivity and reduced health care costs.
- Every 15 seconds, a child dies from a water-related disease. Unsafe water causes 80% of all sickness and disease, and kills more innocent people every year than all forms of violence, including war.
- Pneumonia accounts for up to 3 million, or as many as one-third of under-five deaths worldwide. Pneumonia kills more children under the age of five than any other disease, one young life every 20 seconds.
- Diarrhea, claims the lives of 4,100 children everyday. 1.5 million children’s lives are unfairly cut short as a result of diarrhea each year.
