I believe access to clean drinking water is the basic right of every human being. India, which is fast becoming a economic power house, half the population does not have the access to that.The price of water for the poorest households is nearly 15% of the annual household income. This is because access to water is close to impossible and the water mafia or loan sharks exploit people by charging 100% interest rates, if not more, on the loans. Every week 42,000 deaths occur from preventable diseases like diarrhea and dysentery, caused by unsafe drinking water. 90% of those are children under the age of five.
If we won't drink it, why should they?!
I am helping Milaap raise money to provide piped water connections go the people. With that they will have access to clean drinking water. Help and lend generously and provide the people with basics of survivial. I say lend as it is not a donation but a loan. And yes like a loan, the money comes back to you in 18 months.
Let us give a little to bring an enormous change in someone's life.
