Did you know that a child dies every 21 seconds due to water relasted diseases? More than 6,000 children under age 5 die each day from diseases spread by unsafe water or lack of basic sanitation and hygiene.
In the developing world, women and children walk an average of six kilometers to collect water for their families.
The journey to and from the nearest well takes hours. And much of it is spent carrying a heavy jug of water.
A majority of these women and children’s time is spent getting water. They could otherwise be working at their house, building a small business, or going to school. But instead, the lack of clean water causes poverty to persist.
Poverty isn’t the only result of inaccessible water. The water that women and children walk hours to get is often dirty and diseased.
World Vision works in impoverished, mostly rural areas to provide potable water, improved sanitation, and hygiene education (WASH) so that waterborne illness decreases, health improves, and the burden on women and children is lessened by reducing the distance to water sources.
This is why Incredibeard has teamed up with World Vision. It is our shared desire to help provide access to clean water, basic sanitation facilities, and hygiene education — because these are some of the most effective ways to prevent child disease and death.
A core ingredient to the Incredibeard brand and philosophy is giving back. That is why Incredibeard donates a portion of the company's profits to World Vision, which is then matched 1:1. Through donations, such as those made by Incredibeard, World Vision now reaches a new person with clean drinking water every 30 seconds.
Here is an up-to-date counter for the number of children impacted by the donations made by Incredibeard.
