People who live in rural countries where there is no clean water are forced to use unclean or even contaminated water for cooking, bathing, and drinking. Drinking unsafe water can lead to many health problems. By bringing them clean drinking water, they are able to live a slightly better life.
Think about this when you purchase your next bottle of water. In America, the average home uses 660 liters of tap water per day. In areas like Malawi, they only use (at most!) 20 liters of water per day. This is typically because this is the only amount of water that they have access to on a daily basis.
Because of the failure to have access to clean water, the infant mortality rate of Malawi is extremely high. The lack of clean water leads to many deaths of infants per year. For adults in the area, the men usually only live until they are around 55 while women usually live to 60. The reason for this is the lack of vitamin and minerals found in their drinking water as well as the increased levels of diseases in dirty drinking water.
Here is another thought for you to consider, every 30 seconds, give or take, a child dies from some form of water related illness in these areas. It can be caused from simply being thirsty, a disease or simply from calamity. If we can work to make this better for underprivileged countries, why not try to help them.
By purchasing Waiakea bottled water, you will work with them to aid Pump Aid in order to bring cleaner water to areas around the world that had no hope until now. You can be a life saver for a small village by purchasing their bottled water.
