Why did you choose charity: water to be this month’s ADKcares recipient?
After doing some research on several different charities, charity: water is the one that stuck out to me the most. As someone who has never had to worry about whether or not I had clean water to drink, I think it’s important that everyone feels the same. There are so many health benefits to consuming water on a daily basis and having clean, accessible water can lead to increased education, income, and health as most people who do not have access to clean water spend most of their day trying to get it.
One in ten people in the world do not have access to clean water which is roughly twice the population of the United States. There are more deaths each year from not having clean water than from violence, including war, and the majority of people dying are children. A donation of any size will be able to give access to clean water to someone in need and hopefully save a life!
