Clean Water

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 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. How? By distributing water filters, drilling wells, building latrines and offering sanitation training throughout various impoverished countries.

You can make a difference

You can provide clean water to families by partnering with BGR. Give below, donate a water filter through our gift catalog, or participate in our Well Dig Dare starting on March 22. Join BGR in working to decrease these staggering statistics.
