Clean Water and Sanitation Program
Water-related illnesses are the leading cause of human sickness and
death in the world, taking the lives of about 6,000 people a day. Women,
children, and those living in rural areas in developing nations bear a
disproportionate burden of the global water crisis, often spending hours
collecting water every day—time that could be better spent pursuing
work or education.
Below is the Clean Water chapter from our documentary, Transforming Lives: In Fact, You Can. This chapter focuses on the work of EMW's Clean Water and Sanitation Program that provides people in rural Vietnam with access to safe water and improved sanitation. Our dual approach to community health greatly reduces water-borne diseases to improve overall health and living conditions in rural areas.
