- 6K is the average distance people – usually women and girls – walk to get water for their families in the developing world. Often, the walk is dangerous and causes children to miss school.
- Almost 1,000 children under the age of five die every day from lack of clean water.
- World Vision is the leading non-governmental provider of clean water.
