Donate for Water

There are so many ways that poor quality water effects the lives of those living in third world counties.  For instance it:

Sick with Malaria or intestinal organisms keeps many students from being able to attend school.  Not only do they not feel like being there, many schools won’t allow them attend when they are sick.

Increases medical costs

Malaria and parasites require medicines to cure.

Decreases work efficiency

Although many continue to work, they certainly aren’t able to work as hard when they are ill.
