Providing Clean Water
Because clean water is a basic need, Rotary International supports projects that focus on providing clean water and setting up basic sanitation systems. Unfortunately, an estimated 3,000 children die every day from diseases that could be prevented if they had access to clean water and better sanitary conditions. This motivates our Rotary members to build wells, new infastructure and sanitation facilities in undeveloped countries. Our members also teach the local people how to maintain the new structure and system, promote good hand-washing and educate them on good hygiene.
