FOR WATER AS
A HUMAN RIGHT
With every liter of WIR - table water, up to ten people will be drinking it, and water projects of the "Water Is Right" foundation will be financed globally and locally.
Even today, around one billion people worldwide have no access to clean and safe drinking water. It is time to distribute water more fairly, to make it available safely and at affordable prices. With sustainable water projects on four continents, the 'Water Is Right' Foundation is working to achieve this.
Sometimes it doesn't take much to help others.
Since 2011, the Water Is Right Foundation standing up for the human right to water and sanitation, especially for people in disaster areas and developing regions of our world. Together with strong and sustainable partners from business, culture, science and politics, we implement reference projects worldwide. Water Is Right calls on states and international operating companies to expand further water infrastructure systems and follow the United Nations General Assembly Resolution 64/292 of 28 July 2010, which provides for the right of access to clean water for all people.

Earth to save
Imagine practicing "Social Distancing" in a city with 500,000 inhabitants crammed into an area of only 7.25 km2. With 68,941 people per km2, the Mathare slum in Kenya's capital Nairobi is more than six times as densely populated as the city of New York.
Bauchi State, Nigeria
