There are 663 million who live without clean water. They didn’t choose to be born into a village where the only source of water is a polluted swamp. Charity water made the decision to help. 

Charity: water, believes in simple things that work. Things like freshwater wells, rainwater catchments and sand filters. For about $30 per person, charity water, can bring fresh water to a village.

This is the story of two sisters, Grace and Sarah. In many countries around the world, women and girls put their lives in danger every day to collect water for their families. These two sisters walk to Lake Victoria, outside their village, in Uganda. During their journey they encounter, snakes, crocodiles, hippos, and men lurking in the shadows. Read about sisters who lived through, rape, pregnancy, and shame. This is how charity: water made it so these atrocities will never happen in their village again. “ It Happened on the Walk for Water” 

Imagine having to walk miles a day with carrying 30, 40, 80 lbs, of water back to your home. Walk so others don’t have to. Get up, open the Charity Miles app, select charity: water, and get moving. #everymilematter #charitymiles
