More than 3.4 million people die each year from water, sanitation, and hygiene-related causes. Nearly all deaths, 99 percent, occur in the developing world. "[The water and sanitation] crisis claims more lives through disease than any war claims through guns." Children are its most unfortunate victims. Over 4200 children die every day due to lack of clean water, sanitation and hygiene education. We can do something.

Wesley Connor and Andrea Hill Visit Ethiopia to experience for themselves the situation faced by the people there. This video presentation is so moving, you will never think about your modern day problems the same way. Please join us in the fight to end this kind of imbalance. Access to Clean Water is a basic human right that we all share. Some of us just don't get to actress or share the water. That is just not fair. $25 can change that.

WaterCan and Aveda team up to save lives in East Africa. Here in this video Wesley Connor and Andrea Hill are on location in Ethiopia meeting the people and experiencing the hardship first hand.

Many of these kids walk 20 kms a day just to get to school. When they get there, there is no food, no water, no bathroom and they are tired and hungry. At the end of the day, they walk home again and if they are lucky, they get a bowl of rice. They do this every day, so that they can hold on to a hope that one day their lives may get better.
