Faced with drinking dirty water or going thirsty, a child will always choose water. It shouldn't be a life-threatening decision, but sadly, it often is.
In the developing world, millions die each year from diseases caused by unsafe water and lack of access to sanitation and hygiene education. Congress has the chance to change this reality — which is why CARE and Mercy Corps are asking our legislators to support the Water for the World Act.
We can't wait for days or months to make sure children and families have clean water, latrines, and the right information to adopt good hygiene. Lives are hanging in the balance. Email your members of Congress TODAY and ask them support the Water for the World Act.
If you take action and have not already registered, you will receive periodic updates and communications from CARE.
Support the Water for the World Act
Dear [Decision Maker],
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
