Clean water is essential to life. An estimated 768 million people use unsafe water sources. 2.5 billion lack improved sanitation facilities, according to the United Nation’s Children’s Fund. On March 22, organizations around the world promote global access to clean and safe water during World Water Day. BGR does its part to provide high-quality water for as many people as possible. How? By distributing water filters, drilling wells, building latrines and offering sanitation training throughout various impoverished countries.
