Providing Moms With Safe Water This Mother’s Day
For millions of moms around the world, the water crisis is a matter of life and death. Every day, it’s a mom’s responsibility to find water for her family’s survival. This Mother’s Day, we’re partnering with Surge for water to change this.Together, we’re improving safe water access – giving moms and their families a chance at improved health, education opportunities, and economic stability! 💓
Around the globe, women and children spend 200 million hours every day collecting water and 266 million hours finding a decent toilet. Instead of starting a business, receiving an education, or caring for families, these hours are lost. Without access to safe water and decent toilets, women face many obstacles in their day to day life. Collecting water can be a dangerous experience, and carrying up to 44 pounds of water often causes physical problems. Often women will face other health problems such as waterborne illnesses and problems related to not having hygienic places to manage their menstruation.
