Safe drinking water is something most of us take for granted, but for 663 million people it is a major burden. As a result, 2000 children die every day from diarrheal diseases, which could be easily prevented. Millions of women are unable to work because they spend a huge amount of time collecting water and caring for their sick children and family members.
All donations to getwater are for the benefit of children and families that suffer from the impact of water borne diseases. getwater supports the use of WADI, a UV-measurement device for Solar Water Disinfection (SODIS). WADI provides safe water very cost-effective, highly scalable and with sustainable impact, because no maintenance is needed. We work in close cooperation with local partner organizations to implement projects where they are needed most. Our partners also ensure training-workshops on WASH-programs (Water, Sanitation and Health) to make sure WADI is used in a correct and efficient way.
Our projects focus on regions of the Global South.
