(1) Globally, 785 million people – 1 in 9 – lack access to safe water. Every single minute, two people die because they lack clean water. Unsafe water kills nearly 1,000 children every day.
(2) By 2060, the water demand along the U.S.-Mexico border will rise by 22%.
(3) The U.S. - Mexico border, spanning 2,000 miles, is home to approximately 13 million Latinos, Immigrants, and Migrants living in Colonias (communities) who lack access to clean and safe drinking water.
(4) If the U.S. - Mexico border region were considered a state, the region would be comprised of the following characteristics: 1) rank last in access to health care; 2) second in death rates due to hepatitis; 3) third in deaths related to diabetes; 4) last in per capital income; 5) first in the number of school children living in poverty; and 6) first in the number of uninsured school children. Access to clean water would help turn these statistics around for the better.Learn More
How We Provide
Based on the specific water needs of a community, we provide clean water in several ways:
Where We Provide
We currently provide clean drinking water in these two locations. In the tent camp location, we provide water jugs to 1,000 Migrant families. In the Colonias 1 location, we provide clean water to 3,000+ Latino, Immigrant, and Migrant families through five filtered water tanks. As we continue to identify new communities in need, we will update our active sites.
