(PRWEB) February 21, 2013
Water For All Nations now accepts online donations for creating worldwide clean water solutions, thanks to a financial gift from the Axia Public Relations firm.
According to the World Health Organization, more than 3 million people – 1.5 million of them under the age of 5 – die each year from issues related to a lack of available clean water.
Nearly 1 billion people worldwide lack access to safe water and 2.5 billion need improved water and sanitation. The World Bank estimates that by 2035, 3 billion people who currently live in areas with severe water scarcity – especially Africa, the Middle East or South Asia – will not have access to safe water.
“As part of Axia’s corporate social responsibility, our public relations firm wanted to help Water For All Nations solve this great worldwide need,” said Jason Mudd, chief executive of Axia Public Relations. “People must have clean water to live and thrive. We are pleased to take our first step toward helping Water For All Nations and 1 billion people worldwide.”
Water For All Nations is a non-profit organization that partners with developing nations to create clean water solutions. The new online tools will make online donations easy to manage for the charity and will simplify the process for donors.
“The donation system we selected securely collects funds online and generates automated reports and contribution statements, saving our organization hundreds of hours in accounting and administration labor,” said Ryan Winter, vice president of operations for Water for All Nations. “We asked Axia for its financial support for this investment and they quickly granted our specific request.”
There are two big issues when it comes to water: access and sanitation. Water for All Nations believes the key to solving global water-related issues is a combination of providing clean-water wells and teaching local communities methods for sustainability. Teaching community members how to maintain the wells and setting them up with a system of leadership that involves responsibility reduces the chances that the well will break down or be rendered unusable due to theft or territorial disputes.
