Access to Clean Water Transforms Lives

Water: Essential Yet Limited Globally

Water is both a comfort in our lives and a limiting factor for millions worldwide.


Every year, water-related challenges and illnesses result in the loss of 443 million school days. Contaminated drinking water causes the deaths of 1000 children daily due to diseases such as diarrhea, typhoid, cholera, and dysentery. This lack of access to clean drinking water results in less prosperous communities.


The importance of clean drinking water cannot be overstated. It keeps children in school, prevents premature death, and reduces poverty by enabling communities to develop economies and agriculture for trade and sustenance.


Human Concern International is actively working in the most drought-affected areas to provide vulnerable communities with clean drinking water. We partner with local organizations that understand the unique challenges of their communities to develop and implement practical and effective solutions as part of our WASH (Water, Sanitation, Hygiene) programs.


But programs are only one aspect of our strategy. The second involves staffing, training, and equipping these programs with the necessary human resources on the ground. We invest in community members to manage and reinforce WASH programs and their infrastructure, ensuring lasting and sustainable change that will benefit the community for generations to come.
