Families Impacting the Global Water Crisis — with Laura Blank :: ITA #135
There is good news about the global water crisis. In 1990, 76 percent of the world had access to improved drinking water. Today, that number is nearly 91 percent and growing.
Unfortunately, nearly 1,000 children under age 5 still die every day from diarrhea caused by contaminated water, poor sanitation, and improper hygiene. Clean water frees children from deadly diseases, liberates women and children from a life spent gathering dirty water and opens the door to education, a promising future, and a full life
My guest Laura Blank from World Vision shares how you can get your family involved in ending the global water crisis in our lifetime.
