2/8/10 Water, water, everywhere but they can't use it.

Why Water? Get the story.

* Nearly 1 billion people don't have safe water to drink.
* A child dies every 15 seconds from a lack of clean water.
* 1 in 4 children who die before age 5 worldwide, die of a water related disease.
* Children often walk miles every day to collect dirty water to drink.

Did you also know?

* Most people without access to clean water live right above it.
* In many cases the only thing preventing access to clean water is money.
