Today, 22nd March, marks UN World Water Day. The theme for 2013 is Water Cooperation. The demand for water has continued to grow – for food production, energy, industrial use and domestic use. It is important to strike a balance between the different needs and priorities of every community and share this precious resource equally.
Nearly 900 million people don’t have access to clean water and almost 2.5 billion don’t have access to adequate sanitation. We are part of the ongoing work to reduce these numbers, and you can help.
How you can help
100% of our profits from the sale of One Water fund water projects where they are needed the most. The focus of our work is to ensure that the projects are most appropriate for the location and sustainable for the long term. When you buy One Water, you are doing one good thing, providing water for someone in need.
In Australia, we are thankful
Here in Australia, we are lucky that fresh, safe water is so easily accessible. World Water Day is a day to be thankful, but it is also important to think about those who have no choice but to give up an education or employment to have clean water. There is good news; together we can make a difference. This World Water Day, we invite you to do one good thing and take action to raise awareness of water issues around the world.
