Wherever they are, people need water to survive. Not only is the human body 60 percent water, the resource is also essential for producing food, clothing, and computers, moving our waste stream, and keeping us and the environment healthy. Water is life. Without it, life can't and won't exist.
According to the United Nations, water use has grown at more than twice the rate of population increase in the last century. By 2025, an estimated 1.8 billion people will live in areas plagued by water scarcity, with two-thirds of the world's population living in water-stressed regions as a result of use, growth, and climate change.
That is a scary thought. 1.8 BILLION people will live in areas plagued by water scarcity. We can't continue down this path and expect the nations of the world to be okay or to survive. When you couple those facts with terrifying facts like, every 21 seconds a child dies of a water-related illness, or ... the average American shower uses as much water as the DAILY ration of a slum resident... it's heartbreaking.
We're committed to bringing clean water to the nations of the world. Right now, you can #BeTheChange and follow us through our three week sermon series of Pray Fast Give by visiting waio.online or downloading the WAIO app!
