We are a registered charity dedicated to:
On average 60% of our bodies are water - in some people it can be as high as 70% - and these levels must be maintained for good health, and our very survival.
Every human being should have ready access to clean, safe drinking water as a basic human "right". However, approximately one in 10 people on our planet are still denied this right.
That's a staggering 650 million people who are at daily risk of ill-health, disease and death from either dehydration or from drinking contaminated water because they have no other option.
It is a tragedy; it is a scandal; it is a great failing of the international community...
But it is also the inspiration for many fantastic charitable
organisations and projects across the globe which are, day-by-day, bringing new
water supplies to outlying communities and reducing the number of people
denied their right to water.
It is also essential that the 90% of us lucky enough to have clean, safe water flowing out of our taps understand the fragility of this resource.
Whichever side of the "global warming" fence you sit on, our planet is gradually getting warmer
The result is that sea levels are rising, leading to increased contamination of fresh water with saline water, and temperatures are rising, with increased evaporation from fresh water lakes and reservoirs.
The industrial revolutions of giants such as
China, India, Brazil, etc - added to the existing pollution in the
"west" - is leading to rapidly increased pollution of fresh
water supplies from rivers running past factories to the clouds passing
overhead, and are increasing the destruction of rain forests.
None of us can rely on clean, safe water continuing to flow from our taps
We must learn to conserve, and we must learn how to reduce pollution.
There has been a revolution in the recycling of both industrial and household waste in the "developed" world in recent decades - a similar revolution is needed to preserve our water supplies.
