Advocate for clean water for every child. Dirty water and inadequate sanitation access, combined with other hygiene issues, cause the deaths of more than 4,000 children under the age of 5 every day. That’s more than the under-5 deaths resulting from AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria combined. Urge your members of Congress to cosponsor the Water for the World Act.
