2021 CHS WFW Why We Walk Header


Today, you’ll use water countless times—to drink, cook, shower, brush your teeth, flush the toilet, and more—without worrying about whether the water is safe.

2.2 Bill_Why We Walk

Every day, millions of women and children worldwide spend more than three hours walking to collect water to meet their families' needs. They walk between one and four miles on average, and often the only available water is contaminated—exposing their families to dangerous waterborne diseases.

We’re walking to change that. We walk to raise awareness of the global water crisis and funds to provide solutions. We walk in solidarity with our neighbors around the world who must walk to collect often-unsafe water every single day.

Join Water Mission as we implement accessible, sustainable safe water solutions in communities worldwide.
