Latest Blog Post

This blog post was written by Shana Nunez, one of the members of the team who traveled to Delhi, Kerala, and Andhra Pradesh in early January to distribute water filters, receive updates on previous projects, and research future water project needs. We are grateful to them, and to our partner in India, Hope Abides, for their work and fundraising for […]

The Water Crisis

Billions of people across the world live without access to toilets and millions live without safe drinking water. People are left with no choice but to walk miles for unclean water or defecate in open, unsafe places. The effects are tenfold, with these conditions leading to preventable yet fatal illnesses. Without access to clean water, and support for sanitation and hygiene, sustainable development is impossible.

The Facts:

  • More than 3.4 million people die each year from a waterborne illness.
  • 844 million people (~1 in 9 people) lack access to clean water.
  • Nearly 2,000 children die from preventable water related diseases each day.
  • 1 in 3 people in the world do not have access to a private, clean toilet.

The Solution

For One Another believes that access to clean and safe water is a basic and fundamental right of every human being, and should not be a luxury enjoyed only by some of us. We use technology, sustainable water purification systems, and education to be part of the solution to the water crisis. We specialize in bringing water filtration systems to orphanages, clinics, schools and small communities. We also educate communities and children on the basics of hygiene, believing that it is key to achieving success.

In many of our projects we use the Sawyer Point One water filter kit, a filter that uses technology from kidney dialysis to filter out bacteria while filtering up to 500 gallons per day. These filters are easy to set up and maintain, and have an indefinite use life. As Sawyer notes, “Waterborne illnesses are virtually eliminated from entire villages within weeks of the filters being introduced.”

When there is no reliable source of water available, or we need to support a larger community with a single source of water, we work with local companies and international organizations to support the construction and installation of sand dams, bore wells, water towers, reverse osmosis filtration systems, and more.
