I have recently been involved in a project called Charity Waters
It is an organization that helps to build wells in areas where the population does not have clean drinking water

This is their mission statement:

Itís hard not to think about water today. In the western world, we face growing concerns about our stewardship of the worldís most precious resource. Thereís talk of shortages, evidence of reservoirs and aquifers drying up, and of course, plenty of people who simply donít care.

But forget about us.

Most of us have never really been thirsty. Weíve never had to leave our houses and walk 5 miles to fetch water. We simply turn on the tap, and water comes out. Clean. Yet there are a billion people on the planet who donít have clean water.
Itís hard to imagine what a billion people looks like really, but one in eight might be easier. One in eight people in our world donít have access to the most basic of human needs. Something we canít imagine going 12 hours without.
Here, weíd like to introduce you to a few of those billion people. They are very real, and they need our help. They didnít choose to be born into a village where the only source of water is a polluted swamp. And we didnít choose to be born in a country where even the homeless have access to clean water and a toilet.
We invite you to put yourself in their shoes. Follow them on their daily journey. Carry 80 pounds of water in yellow fuel cans. Dig with their children in sand for water. Line up at a well and wait 8 hours for a turn.
Now, make a decision to help. Weíre not offering grand solutions and billion dollar schemes, but instead, simple things that work. Things like freshwater wells, rainwater catchments and sand filters. For about $20 a person, we know how to help millions.

Start by helping one.
