Clean Water

An estimated 768 million people use unsafe water sources and 2.5 billion lack improved sanitation facilities, according to the United Nation’s Children’s Fund. On March 22, agencies and nonprofit organizations around the world will 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 by distributing water filters, drilling wells, building latrines and offering sanitation training throughout various impoverished countries. Through these efforts, Southern Baptists are working to decrease these staggering statistics.
