Matt Damon and WaterPartners Launch Water.org
Matt Damon is at it again!
Actor and advocate Matt Damon's H2O Africa and the WaterPartners International have partnered merged to create water.org, a non-profit that provides the developing world with access to safe water and sanitation. Its mission is to assist the 2.5 billion people that lack clean sanitation and 890 million people without safe water worldwide.”
Water.org is making great strides and currently has projects in Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Bangladesh, India, Philippines, El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras.
“Every 15 seconds, a child in the developing world dies from water-related disease. After visiting project sites in Africa and Asia with Gary, I’ve seen the problem and the impact of safe water.” Damon said, “As a clear leader in the sector at delivering innovative and sustainable solutions for those in need, WaterPartners was the natural choice with whom to work to truly affect lasting change.”
We commend Damon for his continued advocacy for people affected by the global water crisis.
